Obscure Canadian artist, David Trant lives and works at his studio in Prince Albert Ontario. David graduated from OCAD in 1991 where he studied painting, drawing and ceramics.
A self-taught wood-carver, David has been primarily making whimsical, Folk-Art based sculptures for the past 20 years. His style is heavily influenced by his East coast family roots and the additive nature of ceramic sculpture. Working in what he likes to call “The Mr. Potato-Head School of woodcarving.”
David creates a basic shape and then fabricates the various parts which create the finished piece. His work has been sold in galleries across Ontario, as well as Nova Scotia and the US.
