Sheldon Goldman

Artist member since 2020
Maple, Ontario

I am primarily self-taught and over the years I have sold my art into collections in Canada and the US. I have won various awards, my most recent being the most socially conscious work for the "All Planet Art Competition" of the Contemporary Online Art Gallery. I began selling my art in 1985. Writers express themselves by writing. I express myself with my art. I have been painting from my youth and the only time I ever took off was during my university years. I have painted using all mediums and for about 15 years, I painted surrealistic watercolours. The switch to another water-based medium was therefore not a great leap, so I have painted in acrylics on canvas since the early 1990's. I made a living selling food ingredients to the food processors over the years as well as being a real estate agent and selling new condominiums. I have been doing my art full time since 2013. My two areas of specialization are landscapes and surrealism. One of the ironies of my art career is that I am colour-blind. I am therefore always striving to tone down my art in order to achieve a more realistic look. I work from my home based in a suburb north of Toronto(Maple) and I am presently concentrating on my surrealistic canvases in acrylics.
