Man and Blue Wigwam
Three Caribou & Blue Spirits, 40” x 30”, acrylic on canvas
An important source of artistic inspiration for Syliboy are the Mi’kmaq rock drawings (petroglyphs) that are found throughout Nova Scotia. These images are grounded in the natural environment that is around us – the animals, plants, rock formations and seasons which our industrial society has pushed into the background. Syliboy’s art shows the deep spiritual connection that the Mi’kmaq and other indigenous people have with the land.
Syliboy’s work is an important presence in the current cultural scene in both Nova Scotia and nationally.
