Victor Gligor was born in Bucharest, Romania. At the age of five his family moved to Sibiu, where he grew up and was educated. Sibiu is one of the most beautiful cities of Transylvania which is located in center of Romania.
Victor discovered quite early his talent for painting and enrolled himself in the School of Art in town, excited at becoming a future artist. Seeing the artists struggling in that particular social-economic climate, the family decided it was better for the junior artist to pursue a career in science. This was the start of an engineering education and practice for over 25 years in Romania, Germany and Canada.
Victor never lost his passion for painting and the nature of the landscapes sealed in his soul the spiritual values that emerge into his artwork.
As art history shows, in many cases the combination of an artistic and scientific mind can be beneficial. In 1987 while working as a young engineer in his country of origin, Victor started an art club to promote the artistic talents within the company.
After he came to Canada in 1992, Victor continued to paint discovering the unique Western landscape.
Victor Gligor is represented by the Birthplace of B.C. Gallery. He is a member of Garibaldi Art Club in Maple Ridge and the Federation of Canadian Artists.
