About Blaise





Blaise Kolodychuk is an artist, film maker, and musician from Calgary Alberta Canada. He has been involved with making all kinds of things since he was very young, and started his Entertainment company in 1983 with his friend Terence Ramsay. Since then he has spent his life making music, producing and directing numerous low budget films, and painting, drawing and putting things together to make art.

Most of Blaise's paintings take place in the fictional, allegorical world of his music project, fukachuk egg machine, and depict the different people and places within the stories. They mostly tell stories of hope and resistance to being marginalized and destroyed by the world around them. There usually is an element of comedy in the paintings if you spend the time to dig through the bleakness of the people and landscapes.

Blaise has attended the Alberta College of Art and Design, and graduated with honours from the film program at SAIT Polytechnic, majoring in producing and directing. He is an award nominated director and his films have been shown in world class film festivals and publicly in many other locations.

Blaise lives in Calgary Alberta Canada.When he isn't off making movies and music and all that sort of thing, he can be found being a teaching assistant for grades 4 - 6 at a Montessori school and an art instructor at his own art school for kids: Arty-Pants.
