Ice Bear


Cowichan on Vancouver Island, BC
Art by Ice Bear
Business Name: 
Ice Bear Studio

IceBear’s work reflects his beliefs about the necessity of understanding the natural world around us, and learning to respect both this Earth and all our fellow travelers on it. Other themes are related to these beliefs, reflecting his cultural heritage, the mythologies of aboriginal peoples, and the conundrum of being aboriginal in a technological world.

Ice Bear's huge public art works (created between 1992 and 2001) have been extensively covered by local media, and been front page photos and TV and newspaper headlines several times. Chris also received a 1999 Community Arts Award for the contribution he and his public art have made to the Capital region.

Media: Chris prefers to paint primarily with acrylic on canvas, although he has used watercolour and oils. He has created sculpture in soapstone, wood, composites, and winterstone, and has released his first series of limited edition bronze.

Ice Bear giclees are produced by the artist in his studio, many are hand finished to emphasize certain segments of the work, all are sealed with high quality UV coatings.
