Russell Treloar (b.1981) is a Canadian contemporary realist painter and multi-disciplinary designer who lives and works in Victoria, British Columbia. Working primarily with acrylic on canvas, his artwork explores the human experience, in the rituals and the places we inhabit, to intensify and preserve the mystery, magic and beauty of everyday moments that might otherwise slip away. His process involves a deep observation of reality to connect with his subjects and he uses the immediacy of realism as an invitation for viewers to contemplate moods, tensions and narratives that could exist beyond the surface. His work is held in several private collections in Canada.
