Born: Quesnel, British Columbia
Schooling: Emily Carr University of Art & Design
(Painting, Color Theory, Anatomy Drawing)
Canadian-born artist Ramona Nordal began her art exploration at Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design in Vancouver, British Columbia. Here she studied lithography, color theory, painting and drawing and later focused on anatomy drawing and painting. Color theory has always been a huge part of Nordal’s process and is quickly becoming known for her richly evocative color pallet. The central theme that unites all of her work is the mixture of the traditional with the unconventional. Her work is a representation of her interest in the human form, pop art culture and capturing the presence of her subjects. Nordal is hyper aware of art's relationship with human emotion and her subjects reflect this as they captivate you and entice you into their world. Her work can be found in Canada, the United States, Mexico, Australia, Honk Kong and Europe.
"The random collaboration of old and new is important to me because this is how I see the new generation. It is the mixture of traditional and unconventional that attracts us and takes us on a fresh new journey."
Ramona Nordal currently lives and works in Toronto, Canada.
