Victor Cicansky

Vic Cicansky, internationally-known Saskatchewan artist living in Regina, makes clay and bronze sculptures with humour and passion inspired by his love of gardening.

Victor Cicansky (Czekanski) was born and raised in Regina. He is a graduate of the University of Saskatchewan (B.Ed. 1964), the University of Regina (B.A. 1965) and the University of California at Davis (M.F.A. 1970). He also studied at Haystack Mountain School of Art at Deere Isle, Maine. In 2007, Victor received an Honorary Doctorate of Fine Arts from the University of Regina. In July 2009, Vic's contribution to the arts as a mentor, educator and sculptor was acknowledged as he was named a member of the Order of Canada. In September 2012, Victor was honoured with the Saskatchewan Lieutenant-Governor's Award for Lifetime Achievement in the Arts.

He has taught at the University of Regina for over 20 years, the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, the University of California at Davis, and the Banff School of Fine Arts. He is the recipient of many Canada Council grants and awards including the Victoria and Albert Award for Ceramic Sculpture, the California Kingsley Annual Award for Sculpture, and the Saskatchewan Order of Merit. Vic has had many solo and group exhibitions across Canada, the United States, Japan and Europe. He is represented in many major public and private collections, including the Saskatchewan Arts Board and the National Gallery of Canada.

We are proud and honoured to include Vic as one of our artist-patrons, with the release of Olives, and the addition of Bonsai Pear Tree to our collection.
