Louis de Niverville was born 1933 in England. He came to Canada with his parents in 1934, living in Montreal, then moving to Ottawa in 1953. He settled in Toronto where he worked as a graphic designer for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) from 1957 to 1963.

The turning point in his work, when he considers he really started to paint, was in 1966-67 with a mural for Expo Theatre in Montréal. After that he developed an impressive artistic technique, particularly in collage, to express his childhood memories. Since 1988, he has lived and worked in Vancouver.
