Mark Sawyer

Mark Sawyer is an Ojibwa from West Bay, Manitoulin Island on Lake Huron. Mark currently resides on the west coast. His recent work has primarily been acrylic and oils on paper or canvas. Sculpting is another medium in which Mark enjoys expressing himself.

The spirituality of the Mandela is incorporated into all of Mark's work, its presence and message made available for all. The power of the Mandela was taught to Mark in southern Ontario, which is where he spent most of his life. Mark utilizes bold lines of movement coupled with muted background images. All lend to a unique contemporary native view.

Mark is a graduate of the Canada Christian School of Theology as well as the National Institute of Broadcasting. As a producer for a local Toronto radio station, Mark held the position of interpretive journalist, addressing contemporary native issues. These experiences have enabled Mark to successfully combine traditional spiritualism with contemporary native statements seen in his work.
