    Ovila Mailhot

    Ovila Mailhot is a Coast Salish graphic artist, originally from Seabird Island reservation in British Columbia, whose roots are both of Sto:lo & Nlaka’pamux Nation. Ovila notes that creating new work and revitalizing the techniques and approaches to Indigenous art is something he feels compelled to do. Ovila’s parents both share a creative streak and love for art. His father spent time with the mediums of painting and illustrating, while his mother focused on writing.

    In his own words, Ovila shares that,

    “Art feels vital to me. And being able to share that passion I have, is very special to me. This tradition of work, and this beauty, is so necessary for our culture & for healing.
