View artist biography

Ed E. Bryant

Tsimshian Nation
 
Ed E. Bryant was born in Lax Kw Alaams, a small native village on the Northwest Coast of British Columbia. Raised by his grandparents and inspired by the cultural knowledge of his grandfather, he enjoyed a childhood full of traditional lessons including the history, mythology, medicine and language of his Tsimshian people.

For many years Edward Bryant has been carving his art pieces in traditional Tsimshian style mostly out of red and yellow cedar, alder, maple, birch and yew wood. He also carves bone, ivory, copper and silver and enjoys embellishing his pieces with intricate abalone inlay. The artist also creates dance regalia and is a skilled toolmaker.

Ed has collaborated with his brother, Henry Green, to work on many totem poles and canoes: a four crest 9m pole in Prince Rupert, a 4m column pole in Port Simpson, and a 3m totem in Geneva. All of these pieces, including an 8m canoe, were carved with traditional bent-knives and elbow adzes. His work was also inspired by various artists including Ron Telek, Heber Reece, Lyle Campbell, and George Mckay.

During the early 1990’s Edward carved in a shop associated with the Museum of Northern B.C. in Prince Rupert. Since 1988, he has enjoyed living in Germany exhibiting his artwork throughout Europe and contributing to private and public collections worldwide.
