Al VAN MIL - Painter

Alphons Van Mil was born in 1950. He has been an artist all his life, originally under the tutelage of his father who was a Fine Art teacher from The Netherlands. The Van Mil family immigrated to Canada in 1952. Al further studied Art at the University of Guelph and The Ontario College of Art and Design, graduating in 1972. By the late 1970's his artworks had already been exhibited at many major cultural institutions including The Art Gallery of Ontario and The National Gallery of Canada. Al has also performed on stage, painting large works in collaboration with many artists from different genres, such as the National Ballet of Canada and The Canadian Opera compnay. Al's colourfully eclectic paintings combine multiple imagery, and classic cultural references, with a loosely metaphoric and painterly eloquence, indicative of his warm personality and vast vocabulary as an artist.
