Historical Context:
Norval Morrisseau, also known as Copper Thunderbird, was an Indigenous Canadian artist from the Bingwi Neyaashi Anishinaabek First Nation. Often called the “Picasso of the North,” Morrisseau’s style was characterized by thick black outlines and the use of bright colors. His artwork depicts the legends of his people, the cultural and political tensions between native Canadian and European traditions, and his deep spirituality and mysticism.
