John Alexander

Northwest Coast Native Artist John Alexander from Tsimshian Nation

Tsimshian Nation

John Alexander was born on January 14th, 1962 in Hazelton, British Columbia near Kispox, off the northern coast of British Columbia. He is a member of the Tsimshian Nation and takes the Frog, a symbol of luck and prosperity, as his family crest. John had the opportunity to apprentice under Don Yeomans and Phil Janze, two prominent artists who teach at a well acclaimed K’san First Nations art school.

John began his artistic career through sketching and painting. However, he has progressed onto the art of Gold-smithing. This artist’s unique works maintain traditional designs and dimensional form within a stylized artistic form. John Alexander is one of the many talented First Nation artists who, through his artwork preserves tradition, heritage and cultural background.
