Born 1988, Vancouver BC
Born in Vancouver, Kyran Yeomans has been carving since 2005. Much of his apprenticeship has been with his father, Don Yeomans, one of the most prominent Haida carvers on the Northwest Coast. His carving is a testament to this experience, exhibiting the precision, detail and creativity that his father is well known for.
Kyran is a multifaceted artist and in 2012 he made a short documentary that followed his father through the stages of carving a totem pole. Kyran is also a photographer and musician and these are experiences that he brings to his carving which is thoughtful and contemplative.
Kyran has worked at different scales from the detailed miniature to the monumental. His most recent project is a set of totem poles, one 9ft and one 13ft commissioned by a client to represent their family.
