Brent Sparrow

Coast Salish (Musqueam First Nation)
 
Brent Sparrow is an emerging Coast Salish artist, and was born in 1970 on the Musqueam First Nation in Vancouver, British Columbia.  

Over the past years, 2006 to present, Brent has apprenticed and carved alongside his mother Susan A. Point as well as master carver John Livingston.  

He worked with his mother on the creation and installation of several major public art pieces, including pieces for the Seattle Art Museum, the City of Vancouver, the City of Richmond, the Seattle Children's Hospital, Stanley Park Gateways, the Vancouver Convention Centre, YVR Skytrain Station and has recently created commissioned art work for CBC (5 carved painted panels), and for VANOC Killarney Community Centre (glass whorl & stainless steel base).

Brent has years of experience as a welder. He has his provincial "B" Red Seal as well as his first year Steel Fabrication which were both completed at BCIT.  This background has helped him and his family with the instillation of major artworks and projects, and will continue to influence his future work.

His awareness and knowledge of Coast Salish Art culture and traditional interests began with his mother. As an established Coast Salish artist, Susan A. Point helped to create an inspirational learning experience that surrounds Brent every day. This upbringing will be apart of his life and his art for years to come.  

Brent creates art to explore and expand the possibilities of his heritage and Coast Salish style, paying tribute to his Salish legacy. Using his heritage as a base, Brent has created several original designs in his own unique style and, as a young Salish artist, he is committed to contributing to his culture.
