Visual arts

Darwin Peters is an Indigenous emerging artist/painter from Pikangikum. Peters will be exhibiting a dozen small paintings. The exhibition by Peters follows a years-long cultural exchange between Jamii Esplanade and Pikangikum First Nations, and has been a part of Isorine Marc's Creatives in Residence work for Ontario Culture Days. The Exhibition will contribute to part of the end of day panel discussion. Darwin is a painter based in Pikangikum First Nation, a community in Northern Ontario. His paintings combine traditional Woodlands art techniques with his own personal experiences and stories. As a result, his subject matter ranges from personal storytelling to pop culture references. When he is not painting, Darwin works at the Eenchokay Birchstick school as a tutor escort to support the young generation of Pikangikum. This event is part of the Ontario Culture Days Toronto Esplanade regional hub.
