The Art of Fred Anderson
Cultural Background: Heiltsuk/Wuikinux Nation from Bell Bella, River Inlet, BC
Fred Anderson was born 1966 at Rivers Inlet, BC, a village situated just east of the northern tip of Vancouver Island. Fred belongs to Heiltsuk/Wuikinuxv Nation Tribe of Bella-Bella, BC. Traditional art has always been a part of his life and is now a major tool in his healing journey. Fred believes that success and happiness is something you attract by the person you become along the way. His art is a direct reflection or manifestation of his spirit. All of Fred's designs have a story incorporating culture with spiritual development; it encourages those to reach deeper and gain more from life. After all, encouragement is a spiritual fuel. Taught by Ross Hunt and influenced by his aunt Sharon Johnson and David Gladstone; it’s his friends Bill Smith and Matt James who taught him to make his art speak.
“We are all spirits having a human experience. We are all here to walk each other home.”
We are adding several new art works in the coming days and weeks. Please check back often for updates.
