Dylan Thomas

Born in Victoria, in 1986, Qwul’thilum (Dylan Thomas) is a Coast Salish artist from the Lyackson First Nation. Dylan was exposed to the art at a young age because his family continues to participate in their culture and tradition.

He has trained in jewelry design with jewelry artist Seletze, also known as Delmar Johnnie. Thomas has apprenticed under renowned Kwakwaka’wakw artist Rande Cook, in all mediums of the art. Rande Cook has also been a major influence in the development of Thomas’s design. His other artistic influences have been Susan Point, Robert Davidson, and the late Art Thompson. Dylan is very focused on his career as an artist, and plans to make art his life’s work. He continues to make work with different mediums and formats including brand-work.
