The Languages that Art Speaks with Guest Artist David Lloyd Wilson E016

January 18, 2022

On this episode of AR:T ROUTE Radio #ARTTALKS, Michelle and David connect on the languages that art speaks.  David Wilson is a member of the Okanagan Nation and the winner of the BC Achievement Awards in Aboriginal Art for 2012.  Wilson’s work speaks of translation and the origins of the Okanagan. The work portrays movement and identity brilliantly created in paint. Speaking of the importance of art to keep us all creative and young is an important message in his words and his contemporary yet ancient icon art.
