About Vilem Zach
Vilem Zach transformed his childhood passion for art into a full-time profession, realizing his dream of painting North American Indian and Western culture.
Vilem is the longest running exhibitor at the Calgary Stampede and is included in the Calgary Stampede Hall of fame. His iconic imagery in both sculpture and paintings have captivated art collectors for more than 40 years.
Many of his life-size statues and heroic size monuments can be seen at numerous tourist attractions and in private collections.
Award’s he has received include the 1986 Calgary Time Capsule Monument, the 1987 Olympic Torch Runners Monument (to commemorate the 16th Winter Olympic Games held in Calgary), and the Mr. W.C. Van Horne statue (1988) which stands proud at the entrance of the Banff Springs hotel.
Vilem’s painting of “Indian Princess” sold for over $100,000 and was chosen for the 2011 Stampede official poster, it was the most expensive painting sold at the Western Showcase auction at that time.
These are just some of the important benchmarks that a lifetime of dedication, respect and passion have permanently etched Vilem Zach into Canadian art history.
