Bob ‘Omar’ Tunnoch is a visual artist and musician who views the natural world as a constant source of inspiration. In his art, his vibrant use of colors, attention to detail and thought-provoking subject matter constantly leave viewers questioning his motives. As a member of the Society of Canadian Artists, Ontario Society of Artists, Federation of Canadian Artists, and more, his paintings can be found in collections across North America. Notably, in 2013 he was featured in the ‘International Contemporary Artists’ publication. Similar to his art, his provocative, Juno award-winning song writing, and unusual approach on the electric bass have made him known in the industry. Both his musical and visual creations leave his audience in anticipation.
