Biography Jack Reppen
John Richard (Jack) Reppen OSA (1933 - 1964)
A prominent mid-century Canadian painter, draftsman, cartoonist, muralist, sculptor and commercial artist, Jack Reppen (aka: John Richard Reppen) was born in Toronto and died there. In spite of a short life (death of a natural cause) and a career as an abstract painter that lasted only three or four years, Reppen's contribution to modern art in Canada is considered important by many.
