Christian Morrisseau

Christian Morrisseau, was born on December 11th, 1969 in Red Lake, Ontario.  He is the youngest of seven children of the renowned Woodland Artist, Norval Morrisseau. Under the tutelage and guidance of his father, Christian was introduced to painting by prepping the background scenes for Norval. Today, an accomplished artist in his own right, Christian’s contributions to the Woodlands School come from not only continuing his father’s legacy, but in like manner, providing his singular take on the traditions passed down to him.  He continues to develop his artistic gifts with passion, incorporating an array of symbology into his images, which reflect on themes such as: family, healing and spiritual beings. His unique perspectives are also echoed through his accentuation of scale and colour composition.

Christian Morrisseau’s work can be found in both international collections and throughout Canadian institutions.  Heavily involved in his community, the artist has donated works to several charitable groupings, including: youth organizations, health organizations, the Nishnawbe-Aski Nation ‘Treaty 9,’ the Spirit Bear Youth Coalition and The Outdoor Writers of Canada. One of his first paintings was purchased by the Minister of the Department of Indian Affairs, Robert Nault, as a commemoration of the historical treaty signing between the Inuit community and the Government of Canada in October of 2002.
