Telosky has participated in many festivals and shows on Vancouver Island. He recently exhibited in two fall shows with Federation of Canadian Artists: Scenes from Western Canada, and 365. For the second year, Telosky’s painting ‘Twin Lagoon’ was selected in 2015 Online Exhibition – 365, as January’s art work in the 2016 FCA Calendar.
Telosky’s paintings reside as far away as Australia, Germany and Texas, but the bulk of his work is nearby, where he paints, on Vancouver Island. Born and raised on Northern Vancouver Island, Telosky worked early on, with pencil sketches of the tugs, small freighters and fishing boats passing his home on Discovery Passage. He later experimented with watercolours and oil paints, but prefers using acrylics.
His many years as a fishing guide, boom man and commercial fisherman, created a strong connection to the sea. Working boats are his favorite subjects.
Telosky finds that the many faces of the sea provide an endless challenge to try and capture. The beauty and strength of the marine scenes of Vancouver Island are both varied and spectacular.
