Formally trained in art, art history and archaeology at universities in Toronto, New York and London, Bloore's experience made him a natural leader in the Regina art scene of the 1960s. By envisioning his art before commencing its production, Bloore developed an aesthetic and theoretical approach that set him apart from his peers. Working with a strict palette, that eventually became limited to white, Bloore's minimalist style was brought to life through the masterful manipulation of light, texture and shadow.
Bloore taught at York University from 1966 until his retirement in 1990. He was made a member of the Order of Canada in 1993.
