C.W. Carson is an urbane artist (painter, digital artist, installation artist). He completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Alberta, and received an M.F.A. in painting from the University of British Columbia. An artist with a trap line, Carson collects images and stories rather than collecting bottles and cans. The collected content is used, reused, and abused in the artmaking process. His art reflects his multifaceted life as a gay male Canadian.
