Of Haida descent, he is a master carver of totem poles and masks and also works as a printmaker, painter, and jeweller. A leading figure in the renaissance of Haida art and culture, he is renowned as an impeccable craftsman whose creative and personal interpretation of traditional Haida form is unparalleled.
Davidson’s internationally acclaimed body of work is found in private and public collections including the National Gallery of Canada, the Vancouver Art Gallery, the Canadian Museum of Civilization, and the Southwest Museum in California. He holds honourary degrees from the University of Victoria, Simon Fraser University, Emily Carr Institute of Art + Design, and the Southern Methodist University in Texas.
