Beautiful 2012 Acrylic paint on mat board original work of Garnet Tobacco titled “Morning Prayers” 16″ * 16″
Garnet Tobacco was born in Manitoba. He comes from a family of five children and is full-blooded Cree. Like many Native-Canadian artists, Garnet is self-taught and his works seem to be much more vital and alive than many schooled artists. He combines brilliant colours with smooth flowing lines to produce works of great visual appeal. They are known to be in collections in Japan, Germany, Australia, Canada and the United States. Garnet Tobacco is one of a growing number of young aboriginal artists destined to revitalize, by visual expression, the cultural aspirations of the Native peoples of Canada.
