In conversation with Canadian artist Brian Hunter

Brian Hunter knows there’s no security in art – and he’s OK with that. In fact, that’s precisely what inspires him to create contemporary oil paintings that bring together past and present in a unique way. “That’s something I like about the pursuit of art. It’s not something you can count on and expect. It’s so unsure – but then you find yourself in a very cool opportunity, like the RBC prize,” says the 31-year-old Winnipeg artist and winner of the 18th annual RBC Canadian Painting Competition.
