Main Wall: Roy Henry Vickers
Canadian artist Roy Henry Vickers is best known around the world for his limited-edition prints. He is also a world-renowned printmaker, painter, carver, author, sought-after keynote speaker and designer whose signature style uses the traditional images of his West Coast native ancestry with the realism of his British heritage. Roy has received many honours for his work over the years. In 1987, at the Commonwealth Summit in Vancouver, Roy’s painting “A Meeting of Chiefs” was the official gift of the Province of British Columbia to Queen Elizabeth II. He was included in the MacLean's Honour Roll of most influential Canadians (1994). He has received the Order of British Columbia (1998), the Queen's Golden Jubilee Medal (2003), and an Hon. Doctorate of Letters from York University (2007). He was also awarded the prestigious Order of Canada (2007). Roy’s work can be found in private and public collections and galleries around the world including the Canadian Museum of Civilization (Ottawa, Ontario), University of British Columbia’s Museum of Anthropology (Vancouver), the McMichael Canadian Art Collection (Kleinburg, Ontario) and the National Museum of Japan (Osaka.)
Roy was born June 4, 1946 in Greenville, British Columbia. His father was a fisherman with half-Tsimshian, half-Heiltsuk ancestry; his mother, a teacher of British heritage. The Vickers family lived for eight years in the Tsimshian village of Kitkatla, then moved to Hazelton and on to Victoria, BC. In 2004, Roy returned with his family to Hazelton, where he now lives and works by the majestic Skeena River.
