Born in Saskatoon, multi-disciplinary artist Greg Murdock credits a trip to Europe following high school for kindling his passion to pursue his practice. He studied ceramics, sculpture, and drawing at the University of Saskatchewan before travelling to Mexico to study bronze at the Instituto Allende. Murdock later came to Vancouver to study at Emily Carr University of Art + Design, where he expanded his architectural vision and imagery, created installations, and discovered the potential of spackle as a medium and surface in his two- and three-dimensional works. Known for fresco-like mixed-media works that elegantly explore surface, space, and form with reference to external and internal worlds, Murdock’s work can be found in the Vancouver Art Gallery, Musée d’art Contemporain in Montreal, and the Art Institute of Chicago.
