Galiano’s Inspiration: British Columbia’s Legacy.
Over a period of a year and a half, some 200 of the finest artists from along the west coast and across the country collaborated to create a stunning 11 foot x 21 foot mural. The mural is called Kunamokst, which is Chinook Jargon for ‘Together’.
The mural is comprised of 231 original paintings that combine to bring to life a new, united image. There are no digital effects, and the artists did not know each other, nor did they know what the final image would be. Artists as young as 16 years to over 90 years old have contributed their work.
There are artists from many communities along the coast: internationally renowned artists, French Canadian artists, First Nations artists like critically acclaimed Roy Henry Vickers and April White, and iconic Canadian artist Robert Bateman. Many of the 200 artists have been featured on the world stage as well. Special guest artists include California world renowned whale muralist Wyland and California muralist Judy Baca, who has a home on Galiano Island.
The mural was officially unveiled in West Vancouver during the 2010 Winter Olympics, as part of the Cultural Olympiad. Since that time it has been on tour in Coquitlam and at the Victoria International Airport. Kunamokst has now been installed on Galiano Island at the Galiano Oceanfront Inn and Spa, where it will be on public display for the next three years.
