Marty Kaufman Biography

Marty Kaufman studied initially at the American School for Artists & Students in Paris, France and then at the Alberta College of Art & Design in Canada. His artwork has been exhibited in Canada and Internationally consistently over the years and is in many public and private collections. Marty has been a visiting artist at the American Academy in Rome, and an invited artist in residence at institutions in Greece. Through his artwork’s research focus Marty was granted a lifetime membership to the Vatican Library. Marty creates motifs from specific visual subjects, landscapes or architectures to generate artistic interpretations of the life affecting aspects of Place. In focusing on those Places that provoke the transitory experience of being in the moment of an awareness to the significant connections between oneself with the greater meanings of collective spiritual pasts, historic religious beliefs or natural world epiphanies; Marty seeks to illustrate, through various media, a tangible form to represent this intangible human experience. Marty is an Associate Professor in the Faculty of the Alberta University of the Arts.
