Marven Tallio

Nuxalk Nation
 

In 1966 Marven Tallio was born in Bella Bella, which is a small township located on the central coast of British Columbia. He is a member of the Nuxalk Nation, formerly known as the Bella Coola. The Killerwhale, Grizzly Bear and the Eagle are his predominant family crest symbols.

Marven Tallio comes from a line of artists; his father, Glen Tallio, is an accomplished artisan and has been documented in various art publications. He has passed on his age-old tradition to his son. In 1973, as a youngster, Marven began carving small plaques. In 1985, while attending the Vancouver Education Centre, he had the opportunity to study jewelry design under renowned Haisla Master Carver, Derek Wilson.

Marven is well-versed in various design mediums, including original painting, printmaking, silver/ gold design and woodcarving. Currently, Marven is enhancing his knowledge of design and exploring various medium alternatives at the Emily Carr Institute of Art in Vancouver. Marven Tallio continues to grow as an artist and his artwork continues to evolve with the expansion of his knowledge and skills. As the Nuxalk people are a small group, it is imperative for them to preserve their distinctive style for future generations. Marven Tallio is one of the many artists dedicated to preserving his culture and heritage via his artwork. Currently, his work can be found throughout many local and international collections.
