Senior artist Harold Feist is a Canadian Postwar & Contemporary painter who was born in 1945 in Texas and currently resides in Toronto.  Harold Feist received his MFA (Hoffberger Fellow) from The Maryland Institute, College of Art (Baltimore) in 1969. He is most known for his abstract and emotive investigations of spokes and fans. Feist’s early works explore the possibilities of the grid, while his recent paintings are poured, washed, dripped, and layered, exulting in the liquid washes of paint across the canvas’s surface.

Feist’s career was showcased in a 2011 exhibition and catalogue, Between Decisiveness and Discovery: The Paintings of Harold Feist, held in Vancouver and Toronto. Among his extensive list of exhibitions, he participated in the 2001 exhibition Clement Greenberg: A Critic’s Collection. Feist has toured Canada, the U.S, and Europe in group and solo exhibitions.
