Troy Bellerose

Cree Nation
 

Born in Picture Bute, Alberta, Troy Bellerose is a contemporary artist of Cree ancestry. The Cree people make up one of the largest indigenous nations in North America, their traditional territory spanning the provinces of Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Alberta, Ontario and the Northwest Territories.

Although not originally from the West Coast, the traditional art forms of the First Nations here in BC have been a continuing inspiration to the artist. Andrew Morrison, an Apache/ Haida artist and a good friend to Troy, taught him the basics of formline design so that Troy could expand his work in this medium. 

Art Bolton, a Haisla artist, has also been extremely influential in terms of Troy's career. Art catipulted Troy's practice into mask carving.  These days Troy mainly carves in Red and Yellow Cedar and his work has become increasingly versatile and unique. For an artist of his age his work reflects a talent beyond his years.
