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.
