LUKE MARSTON – YOUNG MAJOR COAST SALISH ARTIST ON THE PATH TO INTERNATIONAL RECOGNITION , HIS STRIKING, PHENOMENAL AND EXQUISITE WORKS ARE ROOTED IN THE TRADITION AND HISTORY OF HIS PEOPLE, HIS ARTIST PATH STARTED AT AGE 12 AND AT AGE 18 HE HAD SOME OF THE MOST RENOWNED NORTHWEST COAST CARVERS TEACH HIM THE ART OF CARVING
Luke Marston’s journey as an artist is deeply rooted in his family.
And today at age 41 he already is receiving recognition for his works that other major carvers only achieved at a much older age.
He was born on Vancouver Island to carvers Jane and David Marston. He worked first with Coast Salish Master Carver Simon Charlie, followed by five years at the Royal British Columbia Museum’s Thunderbird Park. For over a decade, he has exhibited at Alcheringa Gallery (Victoria) and the Inuit Gallery (Vancouver). He’s also exhibited in the United States and
Japan, and has received commissions from the Canadian Government, the Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia and the Nanaimo Airport.
In 2010, Luke was commissioned to complete a Healing Bentwood Box for the National Truth and Reconciliation Commission. This large cedar chest now travels throughout Canada as a symbol of healing for First Nation peoples across the country.
Luke Marston graciously accepted the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Award in 2012 in recognition of his contribution to the arts.
In the Spring of 2015, Luke Marston unveiled five years of hard work and determination in his feature piece at Brochton Point in Stanley Park,Vancouver, BC. This international project was inspired by Luke’s Coast Salish and Porteguese ancestors and is a 17 foot bronzed sculpture integrating traditional Coast Salish carving casted in bronze and surrounded in a mosaic created of stone from Portugal. This sculpture is known as Shore to Shore and more detailed information can be found at www.shoretoshore.ca.

What inspires him.
The success that many Northwest Coast artists are having is rubbing off on the younger generation.
