I'm a nehiyaw artist, living in amiskwaciwâskahikan. I'm a traditional old school & portrait artist, I'm currently dabbling in portrait film photography & 90's grudge & wireframe pieces. I've been using these methods to modernizing traditional indigenous art for the last few years now. The word wâpos is nehiyawewin (cree) for rabbit, which is why there's a wâpos in all my prints.
