  • Jack Campbell

  • Jack Campbell of New Westminster was as a full time artist, specializing in watercolour and acrylic painting as well as paper sculpture works.

    He taught drawing and painting workshops for the Emily Carr College of Art Outreach Program. For eight years he taught full time at the Kootenay School of Art in Nelson, as well as various summer schools and art organizations throughout the province and the lower mainland of B.C. Campbell worked as a painter and graphic designer since graduating as an honour student from the Vancouver School of Art (now the Emily Carr College of Art and Design) in 1952.

    In his paintings as well as his paper sculpture designs, Jack is intrigued by shapes. He referred to his approach to designing as “exploring with pieces (shapes) of colour.” Jack stressed the life of shapes on their own as elements of a design, which are combined with other elements to make up the final piece of art. Jack has had numerous exhibitions in British Columbia of his figure drawings, paintings and paper sculptures and has participated in numerous group shows in Western Canada and Washington. His work is in private and corporate collections across Canada, United States, England and Europe.

    Jack Campbell passed away in 2014.
