Arnold Shives
Lonsdale-Mountain-View_Arnold-Shives.jpgArnold Shives was born in 1943 in Vancouver. He developed his love of art during his high school years at Lord Byng Secondary in Vancouver and later at UBC where he audited painting classes with the ever-inspiring Gordon Smith. In 1968, returning to Vancouver from Stanford University, he met Toni Onley who became a lifelong mentor. Toni encouraged Arnold to pursue his imagery with professional galleries and met early success in both Vancouver and Toronto. Since that time he has worked as a full-time artist exploring the serene nature of the landscape in painting, assemblage and through printmaking. Arnold’s work has been exhibited across Canada, the United States, in South Africa, in Europe and in Japan. Shives work can be found in numerous public and private collections including the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa.
