A renowned painter and sculptor, David Thauberger is known across Canada as a pillar of prairie folk art. His iconic paintings of Saskatchewan's "everyday" architecture, such as houses and storefronts, are prized both for their artistic merit and as historical documents of his province's built landscape. Dedicated to ensuring the vitality of his craft, he also actively promotes the work of other Saskatchewan artists through numerous curatorial ventures, and by purchasing their works and donating them to various galleries, public collections and the Canada Council Art Bank. An advocate as well as an artist, he promotes an attitude of open-mindedness and awareness of the international context of art and the place of folk art within it.
