2015 Lifetime Achievement Award

Joe David

Joe DavidA Nuu-chah-nulth artist, born on Meares Island, Joe David is among the most respected master artists of the Northwest Coast. After studying art at various institutions, Joe began to focus intensively on Northwest Coast art and, eventually, on the Nuu-chah-nulth style. Drawn by the spiritual essence within his culture, which directed his path in art-making, Joe deftly applies his creative skills to multiple mediums including wood, bronze, paper and metals. Today, Joe's work is represented in museums and private collections, locally, nationally and internationally - he continues to lecture on Northwest Coast art and enthusiastically participate in contemporary ceremonies.

Thank you
