Artist of the moment……..Kelly Robinson…….2,000 posts!

 

 

Kelly Robinson is a young Canadian artist representing the Nuxalk nation. Kelly Robinson was born in Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada in the year 1981. The artist is a prolific carver and jewelry maker.

Kelly Robinson attended the Native Education College located in Vancouver, British Columbia where he studied jewelry making.

Price range information: Works range from $250 to $5,000. Small pendants and jewelry items can be found for a few hundred dollars. The wooden carved masks are on the upper end of his price range.

His family heritage reflects both the Nuxalk and Nuu-chah-nulth nations.

The artist was motivated and inspired to be an artist by his uncle, Alvin Mack, a world renown master carver and also a jewelry artist.

The artist is excited to be at the beginning of what looks to be a great artistic career. He is thankful for the help and knowledge that is available to him. A very gracious and humble artist whose best years are definitely ahead of him! He began as a painter, but now makes a lot of jewelry using the graphic design. It will be interesting to see what mediums he learns next!

This entry is post number 2,000! I look forward to the next 1,000 posts and hope we can continue learning a great deal.
