David Marshak studied fine art and illustration at the Ontario College of Art and Design from 1989 to 1993 with his final year spent off campus in Florence, Italy. He worked briefly in illustration (and as a waiter) before starting a full-time career in fine art with a focus on the landscape. From 1996 to 2014 he was a member of Drawnonward, a collective of artists with shifting membership that travelled Canada and put on large shows of widely ranging work based on their travels together. David has had many successful solo shows at Galleries such as John Libby Fine Arts in Toronto, James Baird Gallery, in Newfoundland, Local Colour in Flesherton and Roberts Gallery in Toronto. David has travelled widely through Newfoundland and the Arctic with travel company, Adventure Canada, serving as artist in residence. His art is widely collected and is part of many private and corporate collections. A father of three children and husband to one wife, David lives and paints in Kimberley, Ontario.
