David T. Alexander is an established, award-winning artist and member of the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts, known for his landscapes and water reflection imagery.

Alexander studied at the Vancouver Art School and at Langara College before graduating with a BFA from Notre Dame University. In 1980, he moved to Saskatoon to obtain his Master’s degree while researching in New York, London and Paris. His international exhibitions have allowed him to explore and give lectures around the world. In 2006, Alexander attended the Morris Graves Foundation in California as an invited guest artist-in-residence, and completed a large body of small paintings on wood panels. Afterwards, he visited Tokyo and Kyoto and was inspired by the cities’ parks and water features. In 2008, he returned to the high Arctic as an invited member aboard a 75 ft. sailing ship. In 2010 he was a resident in the Grand Canyon and 2012 he was a guest artist for 2 months in Taos, New Mexico.

Corporate and private collections include those in major Canadian cities as well as in Dubai, Seoul, New York, Mumbai and Nice, among others. Alexander’s signature landscapes and waterscapes represent his significant forty five year history in painting and drawing with a bold palette and gestural application.
