Simon Brascoupe – Anishnabe Artist

Simon-Brascoupe-527x600Simon Brascoupé is an Anishinabe artist practicing in community-based or community-engaged public art. This sculpture first emerged from elders of Kitigan Zibi Anishinabeg who wanted a monument that represented family, women, animals and canoes. Connecting the viewer to the sacredness of the land through art is my first obsession. Humans have become alienated from the land, so Art has the power to reconnect us with “who we are as human beings.”
