Born of the Gitxsan (K’san) Nation, Clint Williams is a practitioner of the painting, ceramic, and wood carving of the Northwest Costal tradition. He began his artistic career with a four-year program at the K'San Art School in the 1990s and went on to teach art at the Gitsugukla Elementary school. Clint celebrates his Indigenous history and traditional spiritual beliefs through his skilled use of freehand painting and cultural motifs.
Located in the historical village of ‘Ksan at Hazelton, the school offers a four-year program dedicated to the renewal and passing of this special art form to succeeding generations. Students strengthen and build on the old art traditions by training in the style and skills of master carvers. Many well-established Northwest Coast artists have marked their beginnings at the Kitanmaax School. ‘Ksan was the first to offer Northwest Coast Indian art in formal instruction. Contributing in the renaissance of the art form, Gitanmaax School of Northwest Coast Indian Art has played a role in elevating the arts profile to a higher degree of popularity and esteem.
Clint currently lives in a state of homelessness in Kelowna, B.C., and creates all of his artwork in the open. All proceeds from these sales go directly to the artist to help support him and his artistic life, and we thank you for enjoying his work!
