Artie George is a Coast Salish
wood carver. Born in North Vancouver in 1970, he is from the
Tsleil-Waututh Nation (Burrard Band). He is the grandnephew of
the respected actor, author and raconteur Chief Dan George.
Self-taught, Artie's fifteen
years of experience dedicated to his art has awarded him respect
from his peers as a carver of fine detail. Through his art, Artie
George expresses visually what his great-uncle embodied in the
words and deeds of his life; the face of our own humanity, at
once with nature and the great spirit within.
He participates in aboriginal
events and major, juried craft shows such as the Circle Craft
and Out of Hand Exhibitions. His works are found in the Glenbow
Museum in Calgary and the University of British Columbia Museum
