Biography:


Luther Pokrant is a member of the Royal Canadian Academy of Art and has been a professional artist for more than thirty years. He received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Manitoba in 1969 and a Master of Arts degree from New Mexico State University in 1970.

"Geographically, I relate strongly to my roots in the Red River Valley. I see it as a central division of Canada, separating the prairie, foothills and mountains of Western Canada from the jack pine and granite of Northern Ontario (Group of Seven country). The natural beauty of forest and lake are an inspiration to me. I like canoeing and fishing. Technically, I admire versatility and tend toward illustration. Collage and composite ideas appeal to me. My work follows a natural evolution which defines its style. Art for me is a lifelong process and a magical journey that holds endless fascination."
