Luke Parnel

This Lunch & Learn Luke will provide an overview of his practice, including current and upcoming sculptural projects.

Luke Parnell is Wilp Laxgiik Nisga’a (House of Eagles) from Gingolx on his mother’s side and Haida from Massett on his Fathers side. His artistic training is both traditional, he apprenticed with a Master Northwest Coast Indigenous carver, and classical with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the OCAD University and a Masters of Applied Arts from the Emily Carr University of Art and Design. His medium is predominantly wood however his materiality is determined on a project by project basis. Northwest coast Indigenous art is the basis of his practice and praxis, centering on narrative, specifically transformation narratives.
