DAVID PARTRIDGE TOOK A HAMMER AND NAILS & CREATED A FAMOUS CITY HALL MURAL

PARTIRDGE4Born in AKRON, Ohio, Mr. Partridge moved to the UK in 1928, then came to Canada in 1936 where he was educated at the University of TORONTO. He developed the technique of hammering different sized nails into plywood to form “landscape abstractions without the horizon. The nails became low-relief sculptures, which seemed to (his) ex-pilot’s eyes like aerial views of topography.”  He was made a Member of the Order of Canada in 2003.
