About Victor Bokas
Victor’s work is featured in several galleries and permanent collections in Central Florida landmarks, including Orlando City Hall, Orange County Convention Center, Orlando International Airport and the Mennello Museum of American Art.
In many of his pieces, he pays homage to his Greek heritage by incorporating statues, columns and vases. He also playfully mixes in 3-D elements. Grids, squares and other graphic design elements rove in naturally to lend structure and direction. No doubt, his long career as a graphic designer ingrained asense of order to his hyper imaginative settings. Victor’s career path includes 9 years Senior Art Director for Sea World and 20 years Senior Art Director Tupperware.
A self-described “collector of kitsch,” his studio is filled with vintage flea market finds. His collection is a source of inspiration and items from it are often incorporated. Victor obtained his degree in Graphic Design from the University of Florida. Victor can often be found working well into the night, preparing for his next exhibit.
