Alan Syliboy


Mi’kmaq artist Alan Syliboy lives on the Millbrook First Nation reserve in Nova Scotia. Syliboy uses the indigenous Mi’kmaq petroglyph traditions for inspiration and developed his own artistic vocabulary out of those forms. His art is exhibited locally and internationally and can be found in numerous private and public collections, including the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, the Beaverbrook Gallery, the Art Collection of the Department of Indian and Northern Affairs, and the Innu Nation. Syliboy was invited to participate in the cultural Olympiad at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver, BC.
