Coon, Silas

Silas Coon is a member of the Kwakwakaw 'wakw (Kwakiulth) First Nations, originating from Alert Bay in their ancestral land. He was born in 1963. When he was 11 years old, he moved to Gilford Island where Jim King, a chief who presided at the potlatch, carved a dilapidated school house. From that moment on he knew he wanted to carve. Silas later learned techniques and skills of carving from George Hunt Jr.. He also worked closely with his cousin Beau Dick, a worldwide reknowned artist, for over 15 years starting in the late 80's. Silas was trained by the best and clearly follows their steps. He is today considered a master artist and highly collected and sought after all over the world. His works are so detailed, clearly proving his love for this art and tradition. 

Silas specialized in the carving of Tribal miniatures and was part of an exhibition of small carvings on Vancouver Island, where his carvings were presented together with carvings by Luke Marston, Valerie Morgan, Kevin Cranmer, Shawn Karpes and just a handful more. A very elite group of artists who's Tribal miniatures in wood are so highly desired, admired and collected all over the world.
