Welcome to the Andrew Csafordi Studio Gallery!
Come and visit us April to October
Connecting and developing your creativity.
Whether you are collecting art or in a workshop creating art
my goal is to help make art an enjoyable part of ones life.
Through each contemporary encaustic sculptural painting, artist Andrew Csafordi brings the viewer into an organic sky, landscape, or imaginative fantasy unlike any other. His luminous, textural paintings reach out and draw the viewer in. Rich layers of imagination, using pure beeswax and damar tree resin as the painting medium. For colour in the wax, dry pigments / oils, as well as fibre, wood, metal and other materials are used in combination to tell a story about “life around us, below the surface” and “the roots that ground the world above”. Realistic at times, impressionistic at other times, each work takes you on an imaginative trip.
A graduate of the Ontario College of Art in 1979, Andrew majored in drawing & painting, communication and design. He has continued to consistently paint, sculpt and exhibit his art throughout his 30-year career as a creative director, professional graphic designer and illustrator with his own graphic design studio. He exhibits his work in several venues (including the SideStreet Gallery in Wellington and was at the Agnes Etherington Art Centre in Kingston for several years, and his art is featured in private and corporate collections around the world.

In his studio, Andrew offers a two-day Encaustic Painting Workshops. Encaustic painting is fun and easy, using natural aromatic melted beeswax and oil paint mixed in for colour. A very friendly medium, the fast drying time allows one to create captivating works that will ignite their imagination. The warm liquid wax is applied to a wooden surface with brushes. Each layer is then gently fused using heat, resulting in a luminescent painting. Relax and be inspired while painting in a casual studio environment in the tranquil countryside. The results will delight and surprise participants. No experience is necessary. Workshop fee includes a workbook, all materials, a picture frame for your art, light refreshments and snacks. Workshop gift certificates available. Visa / Mastercard accepted. See Workshop section for more information.
