Salish artist Ed Archie NoiseCat grew up in British Columbia’s remote, mountainous interior with his mother’s people, the Canim Lake Band of Shuswap Indians. He draws inspiration from his mother’s plateau culture, and from his father’s people, the Lil’wat.
Trained as a master printmaker at the prestigious Emily Carr College of Art & Design, NoiseCat’s vision was then distilled by experience as a fine art lithographer in New York and Boston before beginning his exploration as a contemporary artist of monumental sculpture, working in mixed multimedia including works in glass, wood, steel, silver and gold.
“My work is inspired by the stories that comprise my life. The people, tricksters, tragedies and triumphs of the Indigenous experience.”
