Northwest Coast Contemporary Art
Feature Artist: Russell Kereama
Black Tusk Gallery is proud to feature the work of New Zealand born artist Russell Kereama. Russell has a history with Canada as his father's family was part of the Musqueam Nation at the mouth of the Fraser River in Vancouver. His work is mainly contemporary using vibrant colours with an abstract style.
Russell’s work embraces a rhythmic flow of vibrant colours and abstract style which aims to reflect three main elements – earth, sky and water.
Since Russell's introduction to Canada this summer, his pieces have been sought after by both private collectors and Corporations alike. His work has been featured in several interior design magazines in the US, Europe, and Australia.
"There are earthly elements at work in my paintings, inspired by life itself – I find never-ending inspiration in the world around me, and the interaction between man and nature. Also, the tribal roots of my family, provides me with a constant source of pleasure, which in turn, manifests itself in my artwork. My artworks appeal to anyone that is not afraid to use colour, movement and texture as a backdrop to their own distinctive decorating style." - Russell Kereama.
