Fantuz Artworks is the shared art studio of Emilie Fantuz and Mike Fantuz. Our studio is located in the "Artworks" building in the Mount Pleasant neighbourhood of Vancouver. Please contact us to schedule an appointment.
Emilie Fantuz is an American-Canadian artist known for her large-scale paintings depicting reflections and nocturnal urban landscapes. Her palette knife paintings combine technical elements of hyperrealism with an abstracted stylization that is distinctly her own. Through reflected imagery and complex compositions, Fantuz investigates the perception of colour and light inspired by the beauty of everyday scenes. Fantuz’s work has been featured in exhibitions throughout Canada, the United States, and the United Kingdom and can be found in public collections including Bucci Developments Vancouver, Henry Ford Hospital and The Bank of Ann Arbor, and in private collections around the world including Canada, the United States, France, China, Caymen Islands, Switzerland and the Netherlands.
Mike Fantuz is a Canadian artist known for his palette knife paintings depicting the urban landscape in the American Realism style. Using inherited palette knives and thick application of paint, he investigates the aerial perspective informed by his extensive experience in the aviation industry as an air traffic controller and pilot. His passion for the urban landscape of Newfoundland and Labrador developed over the decade he spent living and working in the province. Work by Mike Fantuz has appeared in exhibitions in Canada, the USA and the UK and is found in public and corporate collections including The Rooms Provincial Art Bank, Fortis Incorporated (NL and BC), Marco Construction, The Delta Hotel St. John’s, and in numerous private collections around the world, including in Canada, the United States, Norway, Italy, and England.
