"David Urban: The Constructor"
2005-11-12 until 2005-12-03
Michael Gibson Gallery
London, ON, CA Canada

David Urban's canvases are dense with paint and intensely coloured. His palette is bright - shocking us with bloody reds, piercing blues and soft yellows. The tight body of work that he has constructed reflects his passion for painting and dedication to his craft. The paintings are rich and varied; evoking strong emotions. Urban is widely regarded as the leading Canadian painter of his generation.

Born in Toronto in 1966, David Urban studied poetry and painting at York University, earning a BFA in 1989. He received a master's degree in English Literature and creative writing under the direction of Alistair MacLeod in 1991 and a second master's degree in painting from the University of Guelph in 1993.

David Urban has exhibited in Amsterdam, Paris, New York and extensively across Canada. His work is represented in many private and public collections including the National Gallery of Canada. His last major solo public exhibition was held at the Art Gallery of Ontario in 2003.
