Canadian artist Brian Jungen draws from his First Nations heritage to transform ordinary objects into extraordinary sculptures. Creating whale skeletons from plastic chairs and totems from Nike sneakers, Jugen examines issues such as cultural appropriation, consumerism, and environmentalism. His work has been collected by many museums, including Tate Modern, the National Museum of the American Indian, and Vancouver Art Gallery.
