    About the Artists:

    Edward Fu-Chen Juan 阮福辰  is a visual artist based in Vancouver, BC, the unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and Sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.  He identifies as a queer Taiwanese Canadian with ethnic roots from the Hakka and the Plains First Nation People of Taiwan.  His focus is to cultivate connection between traditional techniques and contemporary values, with the objective to advocate for more ecologically sustainable practice.

    Jade Balogh-Callow is a queer, settler and Kwakwaka’wakw artist and member of the We Wai Kai Nation. Their interests lie in printmaking and Indigenous North West Coast art. They grew up on the unceded and ancestral territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓ əm (Musqueam) peoples, in Richmond, BC and currently resides on the territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓ əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) peoples in Vancouver. They are studying Visual Arts and First Nations and Indigenous studies at the University of British Columbia, where they discovered a passion for artmaking and the appreciation of craft. Jade chooses to embrace the process of artmaking, exploring the balance between the tedious nature of printmaking and the spontaneity of experimentation.
