Waddington's Auction House Biography and Notes

Toronto painter David Urban works between abstraction and representation in an energetic and deeply considered engagement with line, gesture, and colour. Known through the 1990s as an abstract modernist, Urban's 2002 solo show at the Art Gallery of Ontario surprised visitors with representational paintings, including the critically-acclaimed A Toy in the Pond. More recent works such as The Returner 1 (2011) and House of Blues (2007) reclaim the visual vocabulary of abstraction. Often named as the leading Canadian painter of his generation, Urban has exhibited works in important commercial galleries across Canada, the U.S. and Europe, and is represented in many private and public collections, including those of the National Gallery of Canada, the Macdonald Stewart Art Gallery, and the Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal. In 2002, Urban curated Painters 15 for the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art and the Shanghai Museum of Art, the first survey of contemporary Canadian art to take place in China. In 2010, Urban was identified by Toronto Life magazine as one of the top 10 Canadian artists for first-time buyers to invest in.
