Biography   David Altmejd

David Altmejd  BFA, MFA (1974)

"I am so not interested in art making as a way to communicate a specific idea. That is so boring to me. It makes the art nothing but an illustration. I want my works to have intelligence of their own, not just be slave to my meaning." - David Altmejd (1)

David Altmejd is a controversial sculptor, assemblage* artist and installation* artist. Since his graduation from university in 1998 his works have been included in numerous important exhibitions in Canada, the United States and Europe; examples of it have been acquired for several important museum collections; and his "The New North" achieved one of the highest prices at auction for a work by a living Canadian artist.
