Jim Charlie

Sea Monster, 2013
36″ diameter
Acrylic on red cedar

Jim Charlie was born on the Capilano Reserve in North Vancouver, BC. Of Coast Salish heritage, Charlie is a member of the Squamish Nation, and their territory stretches from North and West Vancouver to Whistler, BC. His work represents a variety of Northwest Coast legends and is notable for its broad and accessible style.

This work is an example of the artist’s masterful carving technique. He uses paint to create further the contrast of the use of negative space.
