Reg Davidson is a Haida carver whose skillful carving and printmaking has contributed mightily to the powerful renaissance of Haida art. He is the younger brother of Robert Davidson and descendant of the renowned Haida artist Charles Edenshaw. Born in 1954 in Masset on the Queen Charlotte Islands (Haida Gwaii), Reg, along with his brother Robert, have worked hard to maintain the momentum Bill Reid started years ago in the rebirth of Haida art. Reg began carving argillite in 1972 and then first carved in wood as an apprentice to Robert during the carving of the Charles Edenshaw memorial house front in 1977.
These artists have been equally committed to helping unearth the ancient art form of the Queen Charlotte Islands, using it as the foundation and inspiration for their contemporary work.
