Former Fort St.John native's art making headlines

A former Fort St. John man is making international headlines for his unusual art style.

Brian Jungen is being featured in the National Museum of the American Indian, in Washington, D.C. A review of his work is also being covered by the Washington Post.

Jungen is part Dunne-za, part Swiss Canadian. The 39 year-old is known for taking everyday items, such as shoes and t-shirts, and transforming them into typical native american art.

The Washington Post reports that one of Jungen’s works include a whale ‘skeleton’ molded out of white, plastic chairs.

In a biography written by another former resident, Candice Hopkins, Jungen says the Doig River Indian Reserve influenced his work.

Jungen has also been featured in the New Museum in New York and Tate Modern in London.
