Jack Shadbolt
Shadbolt_SHAD010_Shore_Image_1997 2.jpgJack Shadbolt was born in 1909 in England. He had a strong interest in technical drawing and athletics in high school, but it wasn't until he met fellow artists Max Maynard and Emily Carr that he began to seriously pursue his art. His passionate and intense study of the dynamics of colour and organic form rendered him a "tour de force" of abstract painting in the world of art. Jack continued a prolific "search of form" in drawing, painting and in printmaking. He became one of our country’s most highly respected artists. Much of his early painting career was also paralleled by a career in teaching that has left a lasting legacy with countless British Columbia artists and teachers. Jack passed away in Vancouver in 1998.​
