Lawrence Paul Yuxweluptun-Canada's Modern Day Picasso

in photography •  2 years ago

This photo is from an inspiring and intensely moving current exhibit at the Museum of Anthropology at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada, "Unceded Territories" by Lawrence Paul Yuxweluptun. In my opinion, it is "Aboriginal art meets Dali meets Picasso" with an overwhelming amount of political intrigue. You could write a book on stories inside and about his paintings, instead, I will leave you with a few words by the artist. "My art is Visionism." "A vision from a Native perspective."
