N. WEST COAST | BEAU DICK

Kwakwaka’wakw Territories | Beau Dick

 

Beau-Dick---Northwest-Coast--First-NationsBeau Dick is one of the Northwest Coast’s most versatile and talented carvers. A carver who takes much of his inspiration and technique from traditional Kwakwaka’wakw art, Beau’s work has been particularly noted for its embrace of contemporary influences, often incorporating European and Asian styles into his creations. His masks in particular have been lauded for their rough yet realistic presentation, representing a piece that is both austere yet incredibly life-like.
