Anthony Morse (Tony) Urquhart was born in Niagara Falls in 1934. A former professor at Western University, Urquhart was recognized in the late 50s and early 60s as one of Canada’s pioneering abstractionists, having been variously linked with the Toronto painters associated with The Isaacs Gallery and London Regionalist artists such as Jack Chambers, Greg Curnoe and Murray Favro. In 1967 he and fellow artists Jack Chambers and Kim Ondaatje founded the artists’ union CAR/FAC/. Since the 60’s Urquhart has followed an independent and autonomous path centred upon his distinctive ‘box’ format.
