Gary Langman was born in Montreal and graduated with honors from the Canadian Art Academy. Immediately after graduating, Gary worked as a commercial artist for a company called Studio B. Desiring to further his studies as a fine artist, Gary enrolled into the experimental arts program at the Ontario College of Art. After graduating he went to trade school to get his welding certificate and he also worked for a plastic company learning the art of mould making and plastic forming or extrusions.
Besides sculpting, most of Gary’s time has been spent painting on canvas using oils. His most aesthetically successful paintings tend to be the simpler compositions. “Knowing what to leave out is a skill that is developed over time and from listening to constructive criticism from those around you. Taking something complex and simplifying it invites the viewer to take part in this aesthetic experience. My biggest desire is to experience growth and change as I continue to grow more sensitive to the inspiration that motivates me to create.”
Gary’s art has been sold mostly to corporate clients such as Shanam Energy and Art Investors Co. As well private collectors have purchased paintings through Ferntree Gallery and Art Space Gallery. Gallery representation also led to a rental of a painting called “First Snow” which was used in a movie called “Word of Honor”.
