ABOUT THE ARTIST
Jay Soule is an Aboriginal multimedia artist from the Chippewas of the Thames River First Nation (Deshkaan ziibing Anishinaabeg), located southwest of London – ON.
Jay officiates as an artist under the name “Chippewar”, which represents the hostile relationship that Aboriginal people in Canada have had with the government of the country in which they have lived since their creation. Chippewar also reminds us of the importance of the traditional warrior role that exists in North American Aboriginal cultures and continues to this day.
In addition to painting, Jay is a clothing designer, spending spring and fall on the pow-wow trail featuring his art and clothing.
