Meet the Artist! Maynard Johnny Jr.blog
Up close and personal…
Join us for an entertaining afternoon to engage with artist Maynard Johnny Jr. (Kwakwaka’wakw/Coast Salish) while he creates one of his latest new works on April 27th between 2-4pm.
In recollecting his earlier years, Maynard remembers how his mother was pivotal in awakening his artistic calling. As his career gained momentum, Maynard was asked to create the design on a cedar box for the 2009 Juno Music Awards, which was given to the presenters and the nominees.
The inspiration for his passion comes from the privilege of listening to stories from his elders, which are thousands of years in the making. Maynard believes his way of sharing these ancient stories is through the creation of his art.
