Kalum is a Blackfoot artist from Calgary who originates from the Blood Tribe in Southern
Alberta. He was first inspired to create art by his grandparents, who were known
internationally for their bead work and traditional regalia.
Mostly self-taught and working in both oil and watercolour, Kalum has become known
for his strong portraiture and his stunning wildlife depictions. His portraits are based on
real life people– those who portray the strength and the pride of the People as a whole.
He captures the spirit of the animals he paints on canvas. Kalum’s work is in the
personal collection of several Canadian Premiers, international leaders and many of
Canada’s leading corporations.
