Military service in Korea
At the outbreak of the Korean War in 1950, Zuber enlisted. He was a parachutist with the 1st Battalion, The Royal Canadian Regiment. He traveled with his battalion’s to Korea in 1952; he was wounded and evacuated to the Norwegian M.A.S.H. and the 25th Canadian Field Hospital.
Throughout his experience on the Korean front, Zuber produced many drawings and maintained a detailed “Sketch diary”. Paintings created after his return to Canada are informed by Zuber’s frontline notebooks and experiences. Fifteen of these canvases are in the collections of the Canadian War Museum.
During the Korean War, no official war artist was designated by Canada’s military.
When the Gulf War began, the experience of Canadian forces during “Operation Friction” was captured by the Canadian Armed Forces Civilian Artists Program (CAFCAP). Zuber was selected from among a field of other applicants; as “official war artist” with honorary rank of Captain.
Zuber served in the Gulf War Theatre from 21 January to 3 March 1991 as Canada’s Official War Artist.

Personal Note from the Artist
As a young man, my art study was interrupted with military service in the Korean War. More than anything else, battle experience dramatically influenced my work as an artist and my perception of life. Paint on canvas became the plateau on which to explore these feelings. Memories of deep fear and extreme discomfort gave me insight to human values and reason to portray life with peace, hope and joy.
A continuing challenge with compositions of landscape, still life and portraiture is to reward the viewer with something beyond the scene, a calming sense of silence and peace.
–Edward (Ted) Fenwick Zuber
