Gigaemi Kukwits creates paintings that explore abstraction, modernism and language through Coastal design elements. His name was appointed in a Cedar Bark ceremony and derives from his grandparents of the Tse wa daen uk and Mus gamma nations. At a young age, Kukwits’ trained under artists Douglas Cranmer, Mungo Martin and Mathias Joe. In the recurrence of patterns and motifs, Kukwits is interested in the syntax of visual signifiers (glyphs) and how meaning is communicated beyond the verbal.
