About the Artist

Artist   Bio/CV/ Statement


"My name is Jason Misurka , an emerging Canadian abstract artist born in 1967
Toronto Ontario. I now live in Mississauga ,where I paint in my home studio, overlooking and inspiring
 backyard view.

Having spent over two decades in skilled trades and being a graduate of The Fundamentals of Art and Animation programs at Sheridan College,i paint full-time as a contemporary abstract artist since 2020.

Active  members of Headwaters Arts Gallery and juried into "We are here "annual fall show and sale.Active member of the Society of Canadian Artist and Mississauga Arts Council and participated in approximately 12 juried exhibitions.



My paintings intuitively engage the subconscious mind with dreamlike state captures and moments frozen in time and space.This is achieved through layering translucent , bold colour palettes , transferred images , and masking film , adding layers of bold colour forms that evoke the senses with energy , flows of movement and joyfulness .

My paintings are an expression and interpretation of my own life experiences gathered from observations . These observations are then collected and inspired from photo captures ,compiled hand sketches of my conjured images and thoughts, and manipulated to shape and form compositions .

The focuses may include inspiring long walks through the urban streetscapes of downtown Toronto , European and Caribbean vacations , and casual nature hikes , such as the winding trails through Gravenhurst Ontario. These life experiences and adventures allow me to explore many areas of interest such as the wonders of nature ,florals and the bountiful colours and landscapes the world has to offer.

My techniques include air brushes with richly  pigmented acrylic tones  ,where I paint wide swaths with sweeping motions and smaller areas of fine details . I engage in hand painting with long and short  gestural brush movements , incorporating free - flow inks to push paint around in spontaneous flows that naturally unfold in its raw organic forms . Final touches may include acrylic markers for fine details and a flick brush for splatter effects .
