Curtis Wilson, Kwakwaka’wakw Artist

Curtis was born, raised and currently lives in Campbell River. His family came from the four corners of the Kwakwaka’wakw territory. Mulidzas is the traditional name handed to Curtis Wilson during a family Potlatch held in 2001.

Curtis received a Bachelor of Arts degree in First Nations Studies from Malaspina University/College in 2002.  He has been a part of the Laichwiltach Culture Group for many years and is very adamant about learning his culture and heritage.  Curtis continues to teach the younger generations about the culture, songs and dances.  Curtis was sketching and drawing in his teens, but never started learning how to carve until the late age of 18.  He learned to carve at small a shed built by his grandfather, Sam Henderson Sr., under the instruction of many of his uncles and cousins, from whom he adopted many of his techniques and styles. In the course of his artistic career, Curtis taught art at schools and got involved in many projects at the same time. In 2017, he was invited to be Nanaimo Art Gallery to feature his art in a show.

Curtis's experiences in artwork are expanding every day and he is constantly learning new techniques that will help him expand his abilities with his art. One of Curtis’ life goal is to learn as much about his culture and heritage, to expand his visions in art and also pass it on to the next generations.
