Jack A. Koca has been painting
for the last 25 years. Throughout his post secondary education
at the University of Lyon, France, he studied colour and the
preparation of paint pigments, their application, and effects
on various textured surfaces. This sparked his interest in
art and the beginning of his artistic career. He attended
numerous workshops with prominent artists which helped him
develop his unique style.

various parts of the world, specifically southern European
remote villages. He is moved by nature, music, people, relationships
and various cultures. This passion provides him with the flexibility
to choose subject matters of landscape, still-life and abstract.
The intellectual challenge of the abstract world stimulates
his creativity and continually pushes him to create new and
He has developed a technique and style of
creating special textures as a base for his canvas. He works
with fluid acrylic and watercolour.

by many art groups where he has received many special awards
From 1985 to present, he displayed his paintings
in countless group and solo exhibitions. His last two solo
