Childhood – 1948–1968

Vaclav Vaca was born in 1948 in Czechoslovakia (later the Czech Republic). From 1963 to 1968 he studied at the Prague Conservatory. Vaca began his artistic career as a ballet dancer and musician. When standing on a street corner performing with his troupe in Paris, he decided to leave for North America.

Canada and painting – 1969–present day

In 1969 Vaca moved to Canada and became a painter. He began to exhibit widely in Canada and the United States. He now lives and works in Toronto. In 1982 he featured in a television documentary on CBC television entitled "Vaclav Vaca – Fantastic Visions". He now runs an interior design business.


His works, which are surrealist, are all brightly coloured and dream-like. Some of his works incorporate religion such as "Gate to heaven" and "The cup".

Since 1973, Vaca has had 15 solo exhibitions, with the most recent being in 2006.
