Victor Cicansky is a Regina, Saskatchewan–based sculptor who works primarily in clay and bronze. He received his Bachelor’s of Education from University of Saskatchewan, his Bachelor of Arts from the University of Regina, and his Masters of Fine Arts at the University of California at Davies. He has also studied Haystack Mountain School of Art at Deere Isle, Maine. Cicansky has been the recipient of many accolades including an honourary Masters of Fine Arts from the University of Regina, the Order of Canada, and the Lieutenant-Governor’s Award for Lifetime Achievement in the Arts.
His interest in clay began in the 1960s and continues to the present. He was one of a number of prominent Regina Clay artists who blended the California Funk style with their own vision, and who made artwork as a counter-point to the prominence of abstract expressionism in the sixties and seventies Often his sculptural works have a satirical or humorous element, and they strongly reflect his prairie cultural roots.
In his bronze work, he continues his garden imagery and blends it with other imagery in unexpected ways producing a variety of sculptural objects and furniture pieces. Cicansky exhibits his work nationally and internationally and his artwork is included in many well-known art collections.
