Artist featured in Central Library: Kalum Teke Dan
Kalum Teke Dan is an established indigenous artist who has been painting for more than 25 years. His roots are with the Blood Tribe in southern Alberta, and although he was raised in “the big city,” his family exerted a strong influence on me early in his life, which led him to an appreciation of Indigenous culture, teachings and artistic traditions. Kalum uses acrylics, oil and watercolour in his work. He works on many different surfaces and has received many large contracts ranging from exterior and interior mural projects to portraiture. Much of his work is based on personal reflection and observation surrounding the spirituality of his People and the energy around us.
