Karl-Heinz Durynek has followed his passion for fine art for the past 40 years as a student, painter and admirer of all art mediums. As a self taught artist, Karl has found the presentation with watercolours to be a perfect fit for the expression for his art. Drawing from his personal connection to nature, he fashions pieces that aim to evoke our deep emotional associations with the colour, intensity and scenery of the world we inhabit. Through the use of watercolour, Karl searches for the often-missed details of the landscape, exemplifying the texture and vividness of a pristine flower or glorious mountain range. Ever a student of nature, Karl is an avid photographer, capturing nuanced moments in time as the inspiration for his paintings. When he is not traveling the highways of Canada in his beloved VW Westfalia, he makes Calgary his home with his wife, Cheryl.
Karl-Heinz will be displaying some of his original watercolours in this year's (2018) Calgary Stampede Artist's Showcase.
