Colin Muir Dorward

Colin Muir Dorward is a painter and musician living in Canada. His first, eponymously titled album was released as he entered his BFA in 2001. Intervening years before his second album, Aspen Tribule, in 2017, were focused on painting and included sporadic musical output under various pseudonyms. Muir’s influences in both painting and music range from the first millennium to present-day. In his present research as a PhD candidate, his focus on the narratives of the medieval vera icons guide his production of large scale oil paintings. In addition to his artistic practices, Muir is presently developing a unique modular synthesizer format optimized for the DIY enthusiast.
