Exhibition No. 1


Murray Van Halem

Bio / Artist Statement

It is the common things that compel me to paint; busy streets, the factories, the harbours. This is where people live their lives, a place where I can speak in paint and record the humble beauty of the simple things around us.

Murray is a Canadian landscape artist and portrait painter working in oils. A graduate of Montreal’s School of Modern Photography, he began his career as a large-format commercial photographer and worked as a photojournalist, portrait photographer,
magazine editor and real estate broker. Primarily a self-taught painter, Murray has attended the Haliburton School of Art and the Dundas Valley School of Art. He now works daily at his Dundas, Ontario studio.
