Victor Bokas

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Growing up in the Florida Panhandle against a backdrop of palm trees, beautiful beaches and sunbathers have had a strong influence on Victor’s life and art. He began painting at age 11 and graduated from the University of Florida with a Bachelor of Design in Graphic Design.

His works are included in corporate and museum collections throughout the state of Florida. Permanent Collections include Mennello Museum of American Art, Darden, Tupperware, City National Bank, Orange County Convention Center, Winter Park Library, Maitland Art Center, Orlando City Hall, Walt Disney Productions and the Orlando International Airport. In 2000, his piece titled Florida Vacation became part of the Orlando International Airport Public Art Project and was turned into an 88 x 15 ft mosaic masterpiece welcoming visitors to Orlando. His work is also featured on the cover of the publication “Picturing Florida—From the First Coast to the Space Coast.”  Solo exhibits include the Maitland Art Center, Bloomingdale’s, Harris House–Atlantic Center for the Arts, Mount Dora Center for the Arts, Valencia Community College, Georgia Southern University, and Pensacola State College.
