    Art Brokerage: Lawrence Paul Yuxweluptun Canadian Artist: b. 1957. Lawrence Paul Yuxweluptun is a Canadian First Nations artist, of Coast Salish and Okanagan descent. His paintings use elements of First Nations imagery and surrealism, and explore issues such as environmentalism, land ownership, and Canada's treatment of First Nations peoples. Yuxweluptun was born in Kamloops, British Columbia in 1957, and grew up in Vancouver, British Columbia. His father is Coast Salish and his mother is from the Okanagan region. Both of his parents were politically active; his father was a member of the North American Native Brotherhood, and a founder of the Union of British Columbia Indian Chiefs, while his mother led the Indian Homemakers Association of British Columbia. His name means "man of many masks", and was given to him in his adolescence by the Sxwaixwe Society. He attended the Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Yuxweluptun works primarily in painting, but has also created multimedia works. Many of his pieces show elements of Surrealism, including similarities to the melting objects in Salvador Dali's paintings. His work incorporates traditional elements from Northwest First Nations art, as well as evocations of the Canadian landscape painting tradition, such as the Group of Seven. Listings wanted.
