Peter Jurik, born in Czechoslovakia, has resided in Canada since 1968. He currently lives in West Vancouver, British Columbia with his family. Peter is best known for his realistic watercolors and pencil drawings, and in particular, for his attention to detail.
His works range from classic automobiles, sailboats and wildlife to celebrities such as Bob Hope, The Rolling Stones, Walter Payton, Gordie Howe, Pavel Bure, Dave Barr, Payne Stewart, John Daly, Tiger Woods and Mike Weir.
After attending many events at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, Peter was inspired to change direction and create artwork involving figure skating. These have included water color paintings of Yuna Kim, Joannie Rochette, Johnny Weir, Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir.
