Find 52: Jeff Sprangs
PICTURING CHANGE THROUGH PICTURES
Friend and colleague Jeffrey Sprang had a special exhibition of portraits and recent work entitled “Cohen, Drake, Downie & Frye: This is not a Law Firm”. His watercolours portray extraordinary individuals in sports, the arts, politics and entertainment. Drake, Gord Downie, Bryan Adams, Traci Melchor, Sidney Crosby, Stephen Lewis and Nelson Mandela– you are sure to find a personal hero here.
“Sprang’s abilities are clear — he’s a master draftsman, superb painter and he designs each portrait for maximum understanding and visual excitement. One sees more than just a face, but the hints of a deeper humanity.”
Jeff’s work is represented in private collections and public institutions including Canada’s Hockey Hall of Fame. In 2013 he was named a recipient of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal.
Most generously, Jeff has donated all proceeds from the show to OneWorld Schoolhouse Foundation.
