Rudy Pongo

Originally from Indonesia, Rudy started to sketch action pictures at a young age. Gradually his interest turned to painting scenes. At 17 he moved to Holland, where he experimented painting in oils. In 1978 Rudy immigrated to Canada (Fort McMurray) with his wife and children where he was enamored by the impact of changes in the seasons to the forest. It was in 1982, with Rudy’s fascination of the beauty of northern Alberta landscapes in the different seasonal settings, that he started to paint again, this time in watercolours. Rudy is renowned for his artwork portraying such scenes, drawing interest from people as far away as Europe and Australia. In recent years Rudy has also painted vibrant florals and thoughtful portraits.
