Extended Label Info: Jerry Didur is known for paintings that are often dreamlike and humourous. Didur's style refelcts the influence of the Funk Art movement, characterized by playful and absurd subject matter. Didur’s active sense of wonder and his propensity for the exotic allow the viewer to escape into obscure fantasy, setting the tone for mystery and play. Jerry Didur (1951- ) was born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. He studied ceramics at the University of Saskatchewan, receiving his BFA in 1976. Didur moved to Regina and turned to painting where he had his first solo exhibition in 1985. Didur worked in Yorkton and Lloydminster for Saskatchewan Society for Education Through Art and the Organization of Saskatchewan Arts Councils, developing arts programs and awareness in these communities. Didur has been the recipient of several grants from the Saskatchewan Arts Board. His works have been exhibited extensively and can be found in several prominent collections.
