Clemence Wescoupe (Salteaux) was born in 1951 on the Long Plains Indian Reserve in Southern Manitoba. He began to paint in 1971 and immediately achieved national recognition with his simplicity of line and startling use of colour and space. He began to study the work of Jackson Beardy (Cree) and was also influenced by Benjamin Chee Chee & Norval Morrisseau (both Ojibway). As his style developed, he attained a sensitive command of negative space. Clemence Wescoupe's art is full of sensitivity and power, much concerned with animal spirits, spiritual guardianship and shamanic transformations, yet many of its images are familiar and its appeal is immediate and profound. Clemence Wescoupe through his great talent and unique style has inspired many artists and instilled wonder in many art collectors.-
