Artiste autodidacte. En grandissant, il a côtoyé et a été influencé par des artistes de renommée mondiale, Jackson Beardy, Norval Morrisseau, Cecil Youngfox, mon oncle Leland Bell et mon père, peintre et écrivain Duke Redbird. Adolescent, Norval Morrisseau m’a parlé des couleurs et de leurs significations en lien avec la façon dont elles expriment la langue, l’histoire et la culture autochtones. Mon oncle Leland Bell m’a montré des techniques et partagé des enseignements et des histoires traditionnels expliquant les animaux et leur signification. Mon père, Duke Redbird, m’a encouragé à diffuser mon art pour partager la beauté de la culture autochtone. Après ces années de formation, j’ai continué à peindre, en apprenant davantage et en trouvant ma propre voix et des histoires à partager à travers mes peintures, qui sont vibrantes de couleurs, d’histoires et de significations.

Self-taught artist. Growing up, he was exposed to and influenced by world renowned artists Jackson Beardy, Norval Morrisseau, Cecil Youngfox, my uncle Leland Bell and my father, painter and writer Duke Redbird. As a teenager, Norval Morrisseau talked to me about colors and their meanings in relation to how they express Aboriginal language, history and culture. My uncle Leland Bell showed me techniques and shared traditional teachings and stories about animals and their meanings. My father, Duke Redbird, encouraged me to spread my art to share the beauty of Aboriginal culture. After these formative years, I continued to paint, learning more and finding my own voice and stories to share through my paintings, which are vibrant with color, story and meaning.
