Beam.jpgCarl Beam

image008.gifCarl Beam was born at West Bay on Manitoulin Island, Ontario in 1943. As a young man Carl Beam found work at a sawmill in British Columbia, where he found time to paint and create his artwork. Carl Beam enrolled in the University of Victoria in 1976, graduated with his Bachelor of Fine Arts, and did his post-graduate work at the University of Alberta. Returning to Manitoulin Island he taught at the Ojibwa Cultural Foundation. Carl Beamís travels took him to New Mexico and Arizona, the South West United States and he spent several years in Toronto and Peterborough in the mid 1980s.

Carl Beamís unique artwork combines imagery and elements of the modern world with symbols and traditions of historic Indian culture. Carl Beamís imagery holds the constant context of European and Native Indian contact, Carl Beamís art plays on the position of Anishinabe native principles against Western ideologies; the Anishinabe world view recognizes the interconnectedness and equality of all living things. Carl Beam admired wisdom of all kinds and respected all sources of knowledge, seeking a balance in his own life.
