David Hoffos was born in Montréal, Québec and grew up in many cities in Ontario, Alberta, and Australia. Hoffos received their Bachelor of Fine Arts, with Great Distinction, from the University of Lethbridge in 1994. Since 1992 Hoffos has maintained an active multi-disciplinary practice – with over 50 group shows, dozens of school and community collaborations, a few works for the stage and over 40 solo exhibitions at public institutions in Canada, the U.S.A., Switzerland, Spain and Portugal. In 2009 their sprawling 6-year installation series, Scenes from the House Dream, debuted at the Southern Alberta Art Gallery, Lethbridge, before a cross-country tour which included the National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa, the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, Halifax, the Illingworth Kerr Gallery, Calgary and the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art, Toronto. In 2014 Hoffos completed permanent public sculpture projects in Grande Prairie and Lethbridge. Hoffos has led international residencies, twice at the Banff Centre. They have received awards including the Images Grand Prize, in 2007, and the inaugural Sobey Art Award (2nd place), in 2002.

In a departure from their usual sculptural video installations and dark dioramas, David Hoffos presents a series of hand-cut photographic constructions. These artworks explore the artist’s quest for new, lost, undiscovered, and unlikely analog techniques.
