Andrew Osta in Paris. International Contemporary Artist

Andrew Osta was born in Kiev, Ukraine in 1982 and moved to Canada in 1994. In 2006, he graduated with honors from the University of Toronto. He began to exhibit in local galleries the same year. In 2007, he moved to South Korea for one year. In 2008, he returned to Canada to help develop the “Healing and Councelling Through Art” program, under SISO Canada. This program utilized the universal language of art to help newcomer refugees from many countries heal traumas and improve quality of life.

In 2009, Osta showed his art and gave a talk at “The Art and Heart of Healing” conference in Iquitos, Peru, where he exhibited with the late Pablo Amaringo. He remained in Peru until 2010, studying shamanic ways of healing. Back in Canada in 2010, he published his first book, “Shamans and Healers” (available on Amazon) and recorded and published his first CD of original songs, “Dimension Dream.”

 

Osta moved to San Miguel de Allende in 2011, where he participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions. In 2014, he published his second book and exhibited with the late Toller Cranston, his close friend and mentor. In 2015, Osta visited Europe to have his first exhibitions in France and Switzerland. The artist may be contacted through his website, www.AndrewOsta.com, or by phone at 415 152 2471. His studio is open by appointment

ONLINE PAINTING GALLERY

Contemporary Oil Painter San Miguel de Allende Canada France Switzerland
Automatically painted, Osta’s subjective surrealism works are always unplanned, channeled rather than created. They are distinguished by an organic quality, lack of straight edges, forms that blend into one another, surreal double images, and the possibility of multiple interpretations. Most paintings in this style were made between 2005 and 2010.
