Introducing Metis artist, Christi Belcourt. Featured on the cover of the December 2015 issue of Canadian Geographic, is a famous indigenous artist. Belcourt’s acrylic paintings, based on beading traditions and floral patterns, captured the eye of no less than haute-couture fashion legend Valentino and her 2014 piece, The Wisdom of the Universe, won the Art Gallery of Ontario’s people’s choice award ahead of the likes of Emily Carr, Alex Colville and Aguste Rodin.
