Fred Trask was born in 1946 in Digby, Nova Scotia, not far from the famous folk artist Maud Lewis, whose work provided influence. Trask began his own painting in the early 1970s working mainly with acrylics on a variety of surfaces. His work is naive, primitive and sophisticated. His paintings usually represent landscapes, animals or interior rooms often depicting a humorous aspect of family or social life.  Dr. Seymour Friedland, of York University, says "Trask's work is unique among the Nova Scotia group in that his paintings always tell a story, often a very funny story....The combination of style and story makes Trask's work very important.” Trask's paintings are included in the collections of The Rossignol in Liverpool Nova Scotia, the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia in Halifax, and in numerous private collections.
