David Blackwood
David Blackwood was born in 1941, in Wesleyville, situated on Bonavista Bay in Newfoundland. Upon completion of his formal studies in 1963, and for the following ten years, he taught art part time, was Artist in Residence at the University of Toronto and most importantly, began to develop his narrative Newfoundland etchings. In 1974 he moved with his wife Anita to Port Hope, Ontario, where he has worked as a full-time artist ever since. In 1993, he received the Order of Canada. As Canada's premier printmaker, he has portrayed the distinctive culture of his native Newfoundland and has advanced printmaking traditions developed by Rembrandt to create distinctly Canadian prints that are sought the world over.
