Eugene Isaac was born in 1958 in Alert Bay, a remote island community off the northern coast of Vancouver Island. Eugene has been making traditional Kwakwaka’wakw art for most of his life. He grew up surrounded in the rich cultural traditions of Alert Bay which is a traditional village site which has remained constantly involved in cultural activities. He began learning two dimensional design at a very young age, and he now considered among the strongest Kwakwaka’wakw designers. He has produced an impressive body of original paintings, limited edition prints and he has been called upon to design and paint numerous commissioned works for other artists. He has studied many of the master artists such as Mungo Martin, Henry Speck, Willie Seaweed, Charlie James and Blackie Dick.
