Kalum Teke Dan has been painting for 20 years. His work reflects his personal reflections and observations surrounding the spirituality of his people and the energy around us.
Kalum, who originates from the Blood Tribe in Southern Alberta, is quickly becoming one of western Canada's up and coming Aboriginal artists. Although being raised in the big city and mostly self-taught, Kalum credits his family and traditions for creating strong influences in his early life. Creating works of art in oil acrylic and watercolour, Kalum has become known for his strong portraiture and stunning wild life depictions. He bases his painting on real people, those who portray the strength and pride as a whole. With the animals he paints, Kalum manages to depict a spirit on canvas.
His work is in the personal collection of several Premiers, international leaders and many of Canada's leading corporations. His work can be found in galleries across Canada and the United States.
