Artist Alex Janvier

It was an incredible honour to spend the day listening to a pioneer of contemporary Canadian aboriginal art, Alex Janvier for the Douglas Cardinal film. Janvier's studio and gallery was designed by his dear friend Douglas and the two vowed to each other in their youth to be successful in their art so they could amplify the voice and space for their Peoples. As a member of the "Indian Group of Seven" Janvier's art has influenced many generations of aboriginal artists that have come after him.
