Brandon laughs as he talks about his time in art school, reflecting on the instructors who would not pass his work due to his persistence on never abandoning his trade-mark style. After seeing his work, it’s easy to understand why he wouldn’t. It’s more than just style he would be giving up too. Brandon’s art is filled with imagery that represents history and his heritage. Bears, Eagles, Wolves, and Buffalo meld with visuals of humans and spirits to leave no doubt why the Cree are called the Nehiyawak (the Four Part People). More than just unique images, each of Brandon’s works hold stories that, when examined under close inspection, flesh out vivid histories and reveal details both personal and spiritual. Meet the artist in person on the 21st of June as the Multicultural Heritage Centre will be hosting a reception in their art gallery for his Spirit Warrior exhibit.
