Hjalmer Wenstob

Indigenous/First Nation Association(s): 
Tla-o-qui-aht

My name is Tlehpik Hjalmer Wenstob, and I was raised on an island in Barkley Sound, in Huu-ay-aht First Nation’s territory, off the west coast of Vancouver Island. It was there that my understanding and desire of pursing both my traditional Nuu-Chah-Nulth and contemporary art practices began. I am an interdisciplinary artist who specializes in sculpture and carving. I am Nuu-Chah-Nulth from the Tla-O-Qui-Aht First Nations on my father's side, and Norwegian and English on my mum’s.
