An Award-Winning Artist Is Coming To Brampton Soon


An award-winning artist is making an appearance at PAMA very soon.

British Columbia-based artist Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas will be coming to the art gallery and museum on August 18 from 2 to 3 p.m. to discuss his epic graphic work, RED: A Haida Manga.

His work is currently on display in the exhibition For A Social Cause

Yahgulanaas is a visual contemporary artist, author and professional speaker. His work has been seen in public spaces, museums, galleries and private collections across the globe. His large sculptural works are part of the public art collection of the Vancouver International Airport, City of Vancouver, City of Kamloops and the University of British Columbia. Yahgulanaas's publications include national bestsellers Flight of the Hummingbird and RED, a Haida Manga

RED: A Haida Manga follows the life of an orphaned young boy named Red and his sister Jaada who live in the peaceful village of Kiokaathli on a secluded island in the Pacific Ocean off the West Coast of British Columbia. Their idyllic existence is cut short when a band of raiders attack the village, abduct Jaada and successfully escape without a trace. The action-packed tragedy combines traditional Pacific Northwest Coast Haida imagery and oral narrative with Manga (popular contemporary graphics found in Japanese comics and cartoons) to create a unique hybrid style.

People must pre-register for the event, but the talk is free with general admission.
