Lawerence Paul Yuxweluptun
Lawrence Paul Yuxweluptun graduated from the Emily Carr University of Art + Design in 1983 with an honours degree in painting. Yuxweluptun's strategy is to document and promote change in contemporary Indigenous history in large-scale paintings (from 54.2 x 34.7cm to 233.7 x 200.7cm), using Coast Salish cosmology, Northwest Coast formal design elements, and the Western landscape tradition. His painted works explore political, environmental and cultural issues. His personal and socio-political experiences enhance this practice of documentation. Yuxweluptun's work has been included in numerous international group and solo exhibitions, such as INDIGENA: Contemporary Native Perspectives in (1992). He was the recipient of the Vancouver Institute for the Visual Arts (VIVA) award in 1998.
