Ben Woolfitt, Modernist and Post-Modernist Painter and Museum Founder of the Modern.Toronto. 
Born in Saskatchewan, Ben Woolfitt has lived in Toronto since 1965 when he came to study at Founders College, York University. In 1966 he made a trip to New York City and was there turned on by Color Field painting, especially the works of Rothko, Louis, Hofmann and Olitski. He loves the luscious sensuality of acrylics. More explicitly he loves the gels potential for deep colour glazes and ravishingly glossy surfaces.
Early in his career, he founded and taught at Woolfitt's School of Contemporary Painting and in 1978, established what became a very successful wholesale business, Woolfitt’s Art Supplies.
