Internationally celebrated visual artist Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas is coming to Prince George! His distinctive work twists and blends Haida art with a broad range of contemporary cultural references.
In Red: A Haida Manga (2008), his award-winning graphic novel and large-scale mural, the artist draws on Manga aesthetic (an Asian style of comic). He blends it with western and indigenous stylistic elements to illustrate a story from his family's past. Right now it's on display in our gallery, part of Yahgulanaas' exhibition, "The Seriousness of Play."
Hear what inspires the artist, and why surreal happenings and colourful characters permeate his works. Learn why he believes an intersection of cultures is defining the contemporary moment.
