Dave Mutnjakovic is an Artist ~ Teacher Living and working in the Laurentides, QC Canada. 

He received his two degrees in Bachelor of Fine Arts - BFA in Community Art Education,
Bachelor of Fine Arts - BFA in Film Animation at Concordia University in Montreal. Also a
Advanced Graphic Design and Illustration degree at St.Clair College in Ontario.

Dave's family escaped former Yugoslavia in the early 1960's to start a life in the border town of
 Windsor which is connected by two arteries to Detroit. He developed a chronic disorder 
that caused his guts to burn and bleed, and nearly killed him when he was 13.

The recession in 2007 decimated Windsor and Detroit guiding him into a strange existence. He travelled around the world for six years learning from hardworking people in 26 different cities, until his health failed him in Tasmania, Australia. He was told that if he didn’t return home he would die.

He returned to Canada and was taken in by a quebecois family to recover and rebuild. During this period he read with intrigue into ideas about medicine, trauma, and art. 


Through years of investigating the source of his illness he realized he was documenting the stages of the expansion of consciousness. He began to draw out his profound experiences. From the point he returned to Canada to the present, he created over 3000 drawings, writings, and animations. 

Dave specializes in developing art projects with "at-risk" youth, children with behavioural issues, and people overcoming medical problems.  His art exhibitions in Canada have awakened awareness of social taboos including mental illness, isolation, and the complexity of trauma.
