Artcite Inc. Artist-In-Residence: Yakonikulanestka Evangeline John

June 28 - August 27

Yakonikulanestka Evangeline John will activate the Artcite gallery for a full month this summer. Her artistic goals are grounded in “learning more Indigenous art forms such as wood carving, cornhusk work, flat stitch beadwork, sewing, basketry, and more. Yakonikulanestka’s art has always been Indigenous-focused, bringing awareness to Indigenous issues, and giving positive representations of Indigenous Peoples through art. Most importantly, she devotes her art to the continuation and revitalization of Indigenous art forms.” (Yakonikulanestka Evangeline John)

 

Yakonikulanestka Evangeline John (she\hers) is an indigenous multi-disciplinary artist, currently finishing her first year of the BFA program at the University of British Columbia, Okanagan Campus. Being raised within her culture by going to ceremonies since childhood gave her strong roots in connection to Indigenous art forms.

The first journey into revitalization began at age 13 when Evangeline learned how to raised beading. This passion guided her into learning more Indigenous art forms such as wood carving, cornhusk work, flat stitch beadwork, sewing, basketry, and more. Yakonikulanestka’s art has always been Indigenous-focused, bringing awareness to Indigenous issues, and giving positive representations of Indigenous Peoples through art. Most importantly, she devotes her art to the continuation and revitalization of Indigenous art forms.
