Tony Hunt Jr.

Birthdate 1961
Birthplace: Port Hardy

Tony Hunt Jr. is a Kwakiutl artist from Port Hardy, British Columbia, which is located on the Northeast tip of Vancouver Island. He apprenticed under Chief Tony Hunt Sr. making himself one of the few contemporary Northwest Coast artists today to be trained traditionally by his father. His strong ties to his lineage and knowledge of Kwakiutl stories and legends, have given him much inspiration in his carving. In 1993, New York's Museum of Natural History featured his work in the "Chiefly Feasts" exhibition. His work was also exhibited in the "Down from the Shimmering Sky" exhibit at the Vancouver Art Gallery. He is a talented traditional dancer and takes an active part in many ceremonies. Tony's pieces are held in private collections internationally and sought-after by many collectors of Northwest Coast artwork.
