Preston Buffalo, a Two-Spirited Cree artist hailing from Treaty 6 Territory, currently resides in the unceded Coast Salish Territories of British Columbia. Through his interdisciplinary practice, he delves into the realm of personal Indigenous iconography and symbolism, employing photography, alternative photo processes, and digital illustration. Informed by the struggles faced by Indigenous communities, Preston’s work explores themes such as mental health, cultural and linguistic loss resulting from displacement, the devastating impact of the residential school system, and the ongoing process of assimilation. His overarching goal is to create visual expressions that challenge and redefine prevailing notions of Indigenous art, highlighting its profound significance in contemporary society, while shedding light on how his creative output contributes to this ongoing dialogue.
