Career Fair 2014 Artwork & Artist Biography

Each year, we purchase artwork from a student for the production of a limited edition Career Fair print.  We strive to support and raise the profile of young artists on campus many of whom are First Nations, Metis or Inuit.  These prints grace the offices and boardrooms of businesses who have participated in past career fairs.  Pictured below with his painting, 'Grandfathers' is Grant Spotted Bull, this year's artist.

Grant Spotted Bull was born on the Blood Reserve and raised in the Cardston/Moses Lake area. He is never without a pen and paper, as he loves to sketch the ideas that come to him. Many of his extended family members are artistic, the talent coming from his maternal grandmother Mary Eva (Medicine Crane) Spotted Bull. One of Grant’s goals is to write and illustrate children’s books on the Blackfoot culture. Grant has been married to his wife Suzanne for almost 22 years, and they have four children.

The Grandfathers painting was an assignment he completed for Painting II. He wanted to create a scene within a scene, a different view of place all contained inside a teepee. He started the base with Chief Mountain, or Niná stako the Old Man as it is called in the Blackfoot language. Building around that base, he also included other aspects of his culture that are familiar to him as a First Nations person. Such as the teepee, the Sundance, and the land of his people. The concept of the teepee symbolizes how the world appears to him. The poles lean on each other for support, while the canvas covering provides safety and security. The lines at the top represent poles, and the bright colour between the poles represents the canvas.

The two people from a photograph were painted in their traditional setting. He wanted to paint them to look like an old photograph. The lack of detail conveys history, or more importantly ancestry, which is important in his life. The placement of the men on the front of Chief Mountain inside of a teepee is very significant because of the reverence we hold for Chief Mountain. He has great respect for his ancestors who have passed on. The people in this painting represent his ancestors, especially his grandfathers.
