David Wilson’s beautiful and complex paintings have evolved from his childhood fascination with ancient Interior Salish pictographs. He studied the styles and principles of Haida and Coast Salish art, but his preoccupation has always been with the art of the Interior Salish. His work is inspired by the same stories of the natural and spiritual world depicted in the rock paintings of his ancestors. He’s not only created the work; he’s worked hard to share it, with public displays in Vernon’s Spirit Square, Performing Arts Centre and Jubilee Hospital.
