David Urban is widely regarded as the leading Canadian painter of his generation. Born in Toronto in 1966, he studied poetry and painting at York University, earning a BFA in 1989. Urban received a master’s degree in English literature and creative writing from the University of Windsor in 1991 (where he studied with Alistair MacLeod) and a second master’s degree in painting from the University of Guelph in 1993. His work is represented in many private and public collections including the National Gallery of Canada. In 2002, Urban curated Painters 15, an exhibition of established Canadian painters which was presented at the Shanghai Museum of Art and the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art.
