Local Indigenous artist Kevin Peeace.
My current style depicts traditional floral motifs reminiscent of beadwork, a homage to my late kokom, who created beautiful works on moss bags, moccasins, and saddles. This new style is a modern fusion of two worlds, one traditional and one contemporary.
The importance of family is prominent throughout the works, The vibrant colours represents the joy of life, it is meant to inspire hope, success, and happiness. These paintings are a tribute to my late mother who was my guide throughout my life, my late Grandmother for her strength in cultural beliefs and traditions, and my children for the inspiration they give me, Meegwetch.
