We don't have any pieces by this artist in the gallery right now.
Born 1973, Victoria BC
During the summer of 1994 while watching his father, Stan Hunt, design and carve traditional pieces, Jason Hunt became intrigued with his family's artistic heritage. When he tried carving himself, he found that he had a natural connection to the art form also practiced by his grandfather, Henry Hunt, and his great-grandfather, Mungo Martin.
Under the tutelage of his father, Hunt began to explore the distinct culture and artistic forms of the Kwakwaka’wakw people. In 1996 and 1997 he was a resident carver at the Royal British Columbia Museum. There he served as a cultural liaison between his nation and people from all over the world. Having already been featured in a number of published articles and exhibitions, Hunt plans to continue enhancing his skills and knowledge under the direction of his father.
Hunt’s work may be found in public and private collections throughout the world.
