Ian Wallace (born in Shoreham, UK, 1943) has been exhibiting since the late 1960s and is one of Canada’s most respected senior artists. As a teacher at the Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design from 1972 to 1998, Wallace has contributed to the development of contemporary Canadian art for over forty years. In 2004 he received the Governor General’s Award in Visual Arts and in 2009 he received the Molson Prize, both from the Canada Council for the Arts. A three-part survey of his work was held at Kunstverein für die Rheinlande und Westfalen in Düsseldorf, Witte de With in Rotterdam and Kunsthalle Zurich in 2008, and a retrospective will open at the Vancouver Art Gallery in 2012. Ian Wallace is represented by Catriona Jeffries Gallery, Vancouver.
