Calvin Morberg

Tlingit
 
Calvin Morberg of the Dakhl’awèdí clan lives in Whitehorse, Yukon. He was inspired by Tlingit carver, Alex Dickson, to begin carving in order to capture the rich culture and history of his people. Since then, Calvin has studied under several renowned carvers, becoming one himself.

Selected by the Department of Tourism and Culture’s Cultural Services Branch, Calvin traveled to Russia with four other Yukon artists. Together, they collaborated with Russian artists on a multi-medium piece of art for the “Inspired by Nature” international project, which debuted in 2008. In 2005, Calvin traveled to Arizona and Peru to showcase his art. As a result, he was commissioned to carve a mask for the Canada Winter Games Host Society a few years later.

Lately Calvin has spent more time locally, teaching beginner carver workshops at the Yukon Achievement Centre and the Northern Cultural Expressions Society, where his pieces are displayed.

When Calvin is not carving bone or wood, he works in ice. As a member of the Yukon Snow Carving team, Calvin has competed in the Harbin Snow and Ice Sculpture festival in Northern China, Quebec, and Whistler.
