Bio:

Christian Morrisseau is an Ojibwe Canadian artist born in 1969 in Red Lake, Ontario. He is the youngest of seven children born to artist Norval Morrisseau. Norval was the creator of the Woodland Art style; Morrisseau spent many years learning his father’s teachings and began to paint himself in 2002. 

Morrisseau teaches the Woodland style to Indigenous and non-Indigenous students in Thunder Bay and communities across Northwestern Ontario. His contributions to the Woodland school come both from continuing his father’s legacy and from providing his own take on the traditions passed down to him.

One of his first paintings was purchased by Robert Nault, then Minister of the Department of Indian Affairs, as a commemoration of the historical treaty signing between the Inuit community and the Government of Canada in 2002. 

Morrisseau has created a scholarship award in the name of his son Kyle, who was one of seven students who died while attending school in Thunder Bay between 2000 and 2014.
