Harold Alfred

Harold Alfred was born in Alert Bay, British Columbia, Canada on Cormorant Island of the 'Namgis First Nation (the people of the Nimpkish River) and was primarily raised by his grandparents. Growing up in Alert Bay, surrounded by his culture, Harold could not help but be influenced by the designs, figures and poles used in Kwakwaka'wakw art.

At an early age, he was provided with plenty of encouragement and constructive criticism in both drawing and learning the correct implementation of design, history and legends. Later, to gain further knowledge and appreciation of the Kwagiulth art form, he studied under present day master Kwagiulth artists, such as Tony Hunt Sr., Doug Cranmer and Oscar Matilpi. Learning the basic carving techniques from wood to silversmith and three dimensional shaping, he has also studied and developed an appreciation for contemporary styles. Additionally, to further enhance his understanding of the composition principles and general art development he participated in a Fine Arts Course at Malaspina College.

In the appreciation and knowledge of Kwagiulth Art, Harold Alfred proudly designs outstanding works which display a contemporary feel while maintaining a strong sense of tradition.
