Beau Dick was an artist, activist, hereditary chief, and, by all accounts, a very engaging personality. His dealer, LaTiesha Fazakas, of Fazakas Gallery said, “Beau made you believe in magic, destiny and the transcending value of art.”
Beau Dick’s work is currently part of Documenta 14 in Athens, Greece. In 2010 his work was part of the Sydney Biennale. The National Gallery of Canada, the Vancouver Art Gallery , the McMichael Canadian Art Collection have all shown his work. He was a significant Canadian artist.
