Art Thompson was largely a self-taught artist, but he did study with Nuu-chah-nulth artists Ron Hamilton and Joe David. From 1978 to 1981, he carved with Duane Pasco. Art studied commercial art at Camosun College in Victoria, BC, as well as at the Vancouver School of Art. He was greatly influenced by artists at the Gitanmaax School of Northwest Coast Indian Art at ‘Ksan in Hazelton, BC. Sea creatures were one of his favourite subjects, and many of his print images were drawn from drum heads. He is considered to be one of the great Nuu-chah-nulth artists of the 20th century. Art passed away in 2003.
