Ancient Wisdom Shawl in Charcoal designed by Kwakwee Baker, Squamish Nation.
Kwakwee Baker is a multi-media, contemporary Kwakwaka’wakw artist with strong traditional roots from Kingcome Inlet and Alert Bay areas. Born in Morocco Africa in 1972 of North American Native and Celtic nationality, Kwakwee is a proud father of 3 boys. A world traveler before the age of twelve, Kwakwee incorporated all his worldly and personal partaking experiences in his artistic representation, with an expansive spiritual flow and visionary dream-like impressions.
A lifelong artist and mostly self taught: his early exposure to Doug Cranmer and Tony Hunt for form design gave him an early advantage and understanding of the complexity of design. Furthermore, Kwakwee mentored with Master Carvers Oscar Matilpi for totem poles and Beau Dick for cedar masks. However, Kwakwee accredits his father and mother Frank Baker and Thias Sewell, along with family friend Tom Doucette for his contemporary foundation.
