About the Artist

Joe Wilson-Sxwaset

Coast Salish artist Joseph M. Wilson (Sxwaset) was born in 1967 and raised at Koksilah near Duncan on Vancouver Island, British Columbia. Joe's keen interest in Native Art began at the early age of 12, while watching his stepfather, Johnny Sampson, designing and carving beautiful works. However, sibling competition with his younger brother, Rick, spurred on his need to take his artistry seriously.

Joe has studied Coast Salish Art extensively. He has apprenticed under master carvers such as the late Simon Charlie, Coast Salish artist Charles Elliott, and the Nuu-Chah-nulth master carver Tim Paul at the Royal British Columbia Museum. He was also greatly influenced by the work of the late Art Thompson.

Joe's artwork is both traditionally authentic and an artistic communication link between cultures. His colours are bold and unconventional, yet extremely appealing and rich. His work speaks of confidence and strength as he continues to develop his unique and original style. He has truly emerged as one of the most prolific Coast Salish artists today.
