Coast Salish / Kwakwaka’wakw Nations
Maynard Johnny Jr. was born on the 4th April, 1973, in Campbell River, located on Vancouver Island off the Coast of British Columbia. He is a descendant of both the Kwakwaka’wakw and Coast Salish Nations and thus has inherited a unique blend of culture and tradition. In addition, his living in Canada and the United States has broadened his scope and influence to that of many native traditions and cultures.
Artistically, although Maynard began drawing at the age of six, it was in his mid-teens that he began to work seriously at developing his natural artistic talent. Due to his various life-experiences his artwork takes influence from many nations, however he blends Coast Salish and Kwakwaka’wakw art forms to result in a unique and contemporary vision of traditional legends and their depictions. During his career, Maynard has won various logo and art competitions. His work can be found in many local and international collections – both private and commercial.

“As a contemporary Northwest Coast artist, the de-contextualization of Northwest Coast art is of great interest to me. By some scholars and Northwest Coast traditionalists, Northwest Coast ceremonial art has generally been perceived as de-contextualized when taken away from its ceremonial context. When the words and songs and dances are taken away from Northwest Coast art, it is perceived by some as being robbed of its meaning; hence the title “Con Text.” As a contemporary Coast Salish artist, one of the undertakings of my work is to create a new context for Coast Salish art through the utilization of text.”
