Artist of the moment……..Patrick Hunt

 

 

Patrick Hunt comes from family of multiple generations of artists and was born in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada in the year 1966.

Hunt is the grandson of hereditary chief George Hunt.

Having only recently seen First Nations art for the first time its important to see the sculptures and carvings in person. So many considerations are taken into account by the artist when the work is viewed from a position other than straight on. The viewer not only sees the outstanding carving, but when viewed from the sides the viewer is exposed to many geometric shapes and fantastic color.

For most works made by Patrick Hunt he uses a combination of wood, feathers, paint, and horse hair.

Price range information: Sorry none available.

Brother Tom Hunt is also a professional artist.

Of the First Nations artists profiled here he reminds me of Beau Dick, who was a master at carving two faces on one head.
