Chippewar / Jay Soule

Chippewa / Canada / Fashion, Textiles

Jay Soule aka CHIPPEWAR is an Indigenous multi-disciplinary artist from the Chippewas of the Thames First Nation (Deshkaan Ziibing Anishinaabeg), located southwest of London, Ontario on the north bank of the Thames River. His work brings awareness to the importance of decolonizing world views and Indigenizing non-Indigenous space and favours using pop art as a medium of expression, creating works that shift the gaze from stereotype to contemporary narratives. Jay creates art under the name Chippewar, which represents the hostile relationship that Canada’s native people’s have with the government of the land they have resided in since their creation. Chippewar is also a reminder of the importance of the traditional warrior role that exists in Indigenous cultures across North America that survives into the present day
