Self-taught, Niverville worked from 1957 to 1963 as a graphic designer for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in Toronto alongside Dennis Burton and Graham Coughtry. The turning point in his work, when he considered he really started to paint, was in 1966-67 with a mural for Expo Theatre in Montreal. After that he developed a formidable technique, particularly with collage, to express an astonishing, visionary world often wrought from childhood memories. Niverville's work was characterized by fresh and provocative thought. He directed his dreams, orchestrating their curious juxtapositions, strange happenings and colours into his paintings.
