After graduating from the Ontario College of Art and Design in Toronto, Bill embarked on a very successful illustration and design career. That discipline required distinctive creative solutions to express subject matter in the commercial world of advertising and editorial illustration. In Boyko's personal work he uses inventive and intriguing juxtapositions of materials and colour to express his unique vision.
Hard edge baselines imply structure to a vibrant array of materials such as wood and metal integrated with softer layers of fabrics and canvas. These materials communicate with, and are often overlaid with, subtle layers of paint, acrylic and chalk in techniques that create depth, movement and texture. Always contemporary and usually large in scale, most works are diptychs – two individual paintings that combine to make a compelling whole.
Bill Boyko's pieces are found in private collections across Canada and the U.S.
