Artist: Alexander Erickson
Alexander Erickson is from the Dakelh and the Haisla.
Alexander is from the Beaver clan on his mother’s side. He now lives with his family on Coast Salish Territory, known as KwitKwitlum. He creates art pieces that reflect the lineage of his Haisla background while simultaneously reflecting current events. He has held onto this passion since he was young.
His favorite medium is working with wood, creating sculptures, masks, panels, and plaques. However, he has created pieces on glass, hide, canvas and paper. Alexander is self-taught, with minimal instruction before going to Freda Diesing School of Northwest Coast Art. His style is unique when depicting stories, which reflects the impact the story has on him.
