We don't have any pieces by this artist in the gallery right now.
Coast Salish carver John Marston (Qap’u’luq) was born in 1978 into a family of exceptional artists in Ladysmith, British Columbia. He has worked with many other prominent Northwest Coast carvers, including Simon Charlie, Silas Coon, Shawn Karpes, Wayne Young, and his brother, Luke Marston.
His career has also been shaped by careful study of museum collections and by travel and cultural exchanges, including a trip to the Sepik River in 2006 and an exhibition in Japan the following year. His exchange to Japan was the subject of two television programs broadcast widely in both Canada and Japan. In 2009, John was honoured with the BC Creative Achievement Award for Aboriginal Art. Later that year, he participated in the ground breaking international exhibition Hailans to Ailans: Contemporary Art of Papua New Guinea.
