Cultural Background: Cree, Moose Lake Manitoba
Garnet Tobacco, a Cree artist, was born on February 6th, 1964 in Moose Lake, Manitoba. The Buffalo is his family crest symbol.
Garnet, a prolific talent, has been painting for over twenty years and occasionally sculpts in soapstone and wood. He apprenticed under Isaac Bignell, a prominent artist who has passed away. Bignell’s style and form greatly influenced Garnet who is preserving it to this day. Fluid lines, soft earthy tones against simple stylized backgrounds are all characteristics that have attracted many collectors. Garnet has works in private collections throughout Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Australia, U.S.A and Canada. His work has also been displayed at the Art Expo in Calgary.
Some of the animals that he loves to paint are those common to the plains region such as bison, herons, eagles, and hawks, but he also explores the marine world with his salmon, whales and turtles, as well as some truly delightful works depicting subjects like the butterfly, hummingbirds and loons.
Garnet’s friendship with his teacher, Isaac Bignell, was something he treasured, so preserving Isaac’s style keeps his identity alive for many to understand and collect.
