Sonny Assu | Artists | Beat Nation – Hip Hop as Indigenous Culture

"Sonny Assu continues to push the boundaries of contemporary art by challenging the perception of Aboriginal art. A multi-disciplinary artist, Assu merges Northwest Coast Aboriginal iconography with the aesthetics of popular culture to challenge social and historical values that we as a society face on a daily basis. His work is an exploration of his mixed ancestry and creates a discourse on we use items of consumer and popular culture to define our personal lineage."

Breakfast Series, 2006. Sonny Assu. 'Assu’s personal past as a suburban-raised Aboriginal youth factors strongly in his art. He easily negotiates between Western and First Nations cultures. References to advertising, consumerism and consumption are where humour often makes an entrance in his work. He uses the hallmarks and marketing trappings of a candied pop culture as an artistic tool. Saturday-morning cartoons, comic books and corporate product marketing informed his mass-media… Saturday Morning Cartoons, Consumerism, First Nations, Art History, Tatting, Pop Culture, Salmon, Digital Prints, Comic Books
