Regina artist, LES SNEESBY, works in a variety of mediums, including oil, watercolour, coloured pencil, ink and graphite. His watercolour work integrates a healthy dose of drawing, resulting in detailed paintings; the surfaces are activated by spontaneous marks inside the contours of forms, giving the finished product dynamism and stability. Les enjoys capturing people’s expressions and emotions, creating a thoughtful connection with the figures and their surroundings.
Les is a past member of the Regina Federation of Artists and the Aurora Art Guild. He has exhibited with a team of artists from Saskatoon called the “Group of 6 ½”; his artwork has been shown in various galleries in Saskatchewan, including Saskatoon’s Mendel Gallery. Les has alsoexhibited his works in a solo show at the University Gallery in Regina.
