An adventurous spirit brought Werner Arnold to Canada from Switzerland in the sixties. Settling in Toronto, he pursued his interest in visual arts by studying graphic art and interior design. Through working in these areas, he discovered a passion for woodworking which he pursued ardently, quickly developing his own unique, highly imaginative style. The pieces evolved from simple painted wooden props to today's' trademark intricately carved polished fantastic creations, incorporating appliqués and the use of elaborate washes of brilliant colour. As his work evolved, he received numerous awards from the Ontario artistic scene.
In 1994, he moved to the East Coast, where he continues to reside and work. His artwork has been exhibited across North America and in Europe and is included in private and corporate collections around the world.
Established in 1976, Gallery 78 represents artworks of established and emerging Atlantic Canadian artists.
We are pleased to provide a range of fine art services including art consultation, framing, in-home trials, delivery, installation, shipping, and payment plans.
