BIOGRAPHY

Norval Morrisseau was born in Fort William (now Thunder Bay) May 14, 1932. He died in Toronto on December 4, 2007.

“My art speaks and will continue to speak, transcending barriers of nationality, of language and of other forces that may be divisive,
fortifying the greatness of the spirit that has always been the foundation of the Ojibwa people.”
Norval Morrisseau – Travels to the House of Invention

Norval Morrisseau (Copper Thunderbird) was a Grand Shamon of the Ojibwa people. Founder of the Woodland School of art,
heralded as the Picasso of the North, Morrisseau as a single force, brought his message to all through his art.

Honoured with the Order of Canada and Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Aboriginal Achievement Foundation as well as
Holder of the Eagle Feather (the highest honour awarded by the Assembly of First Nations), Morrisseau has forever changed the face of art.

One of seven children, Morrisseau was raised by his maternal grandparents. He left school after the fourth grade and developed
his art from 1959 while working in mining and in the early 1960s became a full-time artist. From 1963-66, Morrisseau
enlarged the scale of his works and developed his pictographic style, now used by three generations of Aboriginal artists.
Combining rich colours, he represents inner realities with strong flowing lines, often indicating spiritual forces.
It reflects tensions between Aboriginal cultures and Christianity, shamanism, the interconnection between all living things
and the importance of the family. In 1966 Morrisseau, with Carl Ray, created a mural for the Indians of
Canada Pavilion at Expo ’67 in Montreal.
