David Silverberg, 1936-
David Silverberg was born in Montréal in 1936. By the age of seven, he was already studying art under the tutelage of the Group of Seven master, Dr. Arthur Lismer, at the Montréal Museum of Fine Arts. In 1957, he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts from McGill University. That same year, he studied etching and engraving with William Hayter at Atelier 17 in Paris and was influenced by those around him- including Max Ernest, (sic) Marc Chagall and Matta. Silverberg soon stated to develop a unique, person style to produce beautiful engravings.
In 1963, Silverberg was invited to set up a printmaking department at Mount Allison University in Sackville, N.B. and taught there for 32 years before moving to Wolfville, Nova Scotia in 1995.
