About the artist
Chris Paul is a Coast Salish artist who is gaining
international acclaim for his limited edition
giclee prints, cedar panels, and glass sculptures.
Born near Victoria, British Columbia in 1969 as a
member of Tsartlip nation, Chris was immersed in
Coast Salish art as a child. Before the age of thirty,
Chris had completed one year of intensive training at
‘Ksan, the Gitanmaax School of Northwest Coast Art,
and had completed a two year apprenticeship under
celebrated Tsimshian artist, Roy Henry Vickers.
In 2007, Chris completed a major commission for the
Sidney Pier Hotel and Spa.
This project resulted in the creation of three large scale
etched glass panels for the lobby of the hotel, as well
as smaller panels placed in each of the hotel’s 55 rooms.
Chris has also gained exposure through the hit television
series Grey’s Anatomy, in which a number of his prints
have been featured. Chris’ pieces often reflect flora,
fauna and mythologies associated with his culture
and his home on Vancouver Island.
