Spread the word about Jim Ulrich

From retired lecturer to globetrotting artist

Jim Ulrich retired in 2013 after 40 years teaching at the Alberta University of Art. During his time there he was awarded the title of Professor Emeritus. He also earned the Research Excellence Award for Demonstrating Excellence in Research.

As an artist of more than forty years, Jim has been most inspired by his interest in natural phenomena and international travel. These interests have engaged him in many projects worldwide. Because some of these projects took him to Northern Australia, Thailand and California, Jim now splits his time between homes in Canada and Thailand.

Jim creates his art in mixed media or acrylic on canvas and he describes his art as a mixture of abstract expressionism, Dadaism, collage and Outsider. His influences include Pollock, Richter, Reiss and Burri.

Jim's art has been exhibited around the world since the year 2000 (see below). To suit any taste or budget, his paintings are available in drawing size to mural size and can be scaled for public works or commercial interiors.

Double Bubble

Inspired by sharing a Covid double bubble, in this case a view from the artist’s home in Thailand. Morning mists fade as the sun rises, giving way to sultry heat. Jungle colours tantalise with their candy-coloured treats.
