Artist of the moment……Glen Rabena

Glen Rabena is an adopted member of the Haida Nation. He surely is one of my favorite artists because his work is a blend of great drawing and the traditional Haida style. Many times the birds and animals are depicted as flat shapes. Rabena’s use of line is great and creates a liveliness in his work that one could easily compare to the Nine Old Men of Disney. Rabena is a printmaker, sculpor, and illustrator.

Glen Rabena was born in Wapato, Washington.

The artist began working in a Northwest Coast style in 1970.

For his artistic education Rabena attended the Kitanmax School of Northwest Coast Art at K’san.

He was adopted into the Eagle Clan during a ceremony that took place in 1987.
