Landon Gunn

Kwakwaka'wakw / Métis
 

Landon was born October 6, 1981, in Kimberly, BC.  His family background is both Kwakwaka’wakw and Métis. Landon Gunn is a new generation artist who began carving in 2002 while studying Anthropology and Politics at university in Vancouver.  It was at this time that he began to look for a deeper connection to his cultural heritage.

In the relatively short time that he has been working as an artist, Landon has worked with some of the best jewelry and wood carvers on the Northwest Coast.  He has assisted on totem poles with Haida artist, Clarence Mills, an artist who has also introduced Gunn to the finely detailed work of jewelry carving.  In addition, he has worked on masks with Philip Gray and Jay Simeon, who have both been a source of inspiration.

Currently, Landon is enrolled in the Northwest coast jewelry arts program at NEC run by Kwakwaka'wakw / Haida artist Dan Wallace in Vancouver BC.
