This piece is for the 215, and the overdose crisis in my community. On the surface they died in the shadows. But I choose to believe that the Creator sees them.. us. That the Moon is the Creator's witness.

A multidisciplinary artist of Indigenous heritage, Bear is from the village of Nadleh Whut’en, the Dakelh nation, and of the Duntem’yoo Bear clan. A student of Emily Carr University of Art and Design, his artistic practice interprets matters of modernity such as mental health and wellbeing, identity, culture, and spirituality, through the framework of Northwest Coast Indigenous art forms.
