Michael Snow was born in 1929 in Toronto. He launched his career in 1956 with his first solo exhibition. For a decade he lived in New York City, where his underground film Wavelength (1967) became recognized as a work that altered the history of film. As a visual artist, he works in many media, including drawing, painting, sculpture, and photography. Now living in Toronto, Snow has created a reputation as a “framer of vision” who, through his inventive and provocative work, has amazed and astounded audiences for more than fifty years.
