Charcoal on a Large Scale with Vjeko Sager

Opus Art Supplies, in partnership with the Continuing Studies Department at Emily Carr University of Art + Design, presents instructing artist Vjeko Sager. Vjeko shares his love of charcoal (he confesses to being a "charcoal-holic") and demonstrates some of his large scale techniques.

Rethink the way you use charcoal.

i don't understand, what is the conscious expression in your process? it seems like high school geometry to me.

Having taken two courses using charcoal and pastels from Stan Hunc at Emily Carr, I can appreciate this video of the 'stretching' of artistic creativity using not only charcoal but also templates, rulers, various hands on techniques. It's rather like creating a 'mixed' media technique but only using charcoal.
The large art piece reminded me of Kandinsky's works, only in black and white.
It's certainly added some ideas to my own mixed media techniques.
Thank you for the video.

very interesting process. curious as i have been working with soft pastel, would you be protecting yourself with a mask or is it unnecessary? thank you.

A very inspiring video!!!! You make this process look so easy. You are such an amazing and talented artist and teacher.

Excellent work and technique, I visited your art exhibition at Evergreen Culture Centre and I really enjoyed it, Thanks for share it!.
