Featured Artist: Didi Gadjanski

 Didi Gadjanski has a profound passion for art continually exploring new forms of expression. An honours graduate of the Ontario College of Art and Design, she is an active participant in the Toronto art scene for the past 30 years with the Toronto Watercolour Society, the Don Valley Art Club and the Arts and Letters Club. She is in great demand as a leader of workshops for various arts organizations and corporations, with emphasis on experimentation and creativity. Having traveled and experienced the people, places and music of many distant cultures, Didi is a keen observer as well as interpreter of these influences in her art. Evoking these experiences, her artistic expression has grown into a distinct language woven on to a surface of textural effects and harmonious colour palette. The language and symbol created is expressed in various painting media. D.D. Gadjanski paintings are in corporate and private collections across Canada and worldwide. She participated in over one hundred group and solo exhibitions. She lives and works in Richmond Hill, Ontario, Canada.

What are you most looking forward to

 It is always fun to meet people and find out what they see in my art especially for the abstract part of my work. Since I teach art and paint various themes and subjects in order to teach people I end up with different images and approaches and have an opportunity to show this in the Studio Tour, while this would not be possible in an one person show which would be dedicated to one theme and direction.

Tell us how you got started in the world of art and who inspired you

 I grew up surrounded by art and artist having them in my family. Being artistically involved in various ways with art and architecture throughout my life I finally went to Ontario College of Art and Design, as an adult, and graduated in Fine Art Painting and Drawing. The most influence in my painting are derived from sites and sounds of countries I travelled, people met and feelings experienced. For the last 25 years I teach art in my studio and in various art schools and art societies in form of lectures, technical demonstrations and workshops. Hope to see you at the Tour.
