Benjamin Chee Chee

Born in Temagami, Ontario, Canada, Chee Chee largely taught himself to draw and paint. His father died when he was two months old and he lost track of his mother. One reason behind his drive for success as a painter was his ambition to be reunited with her.

He was a prominent member of the second generation of Woodland Indian painters, a native art movement that began in the early nineteen-sixties and has since become one of the important art schools in Canada. Unlike many of his contemporaries, he painted in a style influenced by modern abstraction. While most of the young Woodland Indian artists were content to follow the style of the movement's founder, Norval Morrisseau, in depicting myths and legends by direct and "primitive" narrative means, Chee Chee pursued a more economical graphic style, a reduction of line and image more in keeping with the mainstream of international modern art.

At the age of thirty-two and at the height of a new found success as an artist and printmaker Chee Chee tragically died.

TESTIMONIALS

November 2, 2010

Winona:

We received the prints Monday as promised. We are DELIGHTED !
People may have various reasons for buying Indiginous People's
Art...ours is two fold, for the beauty and , perhaps more important,
to bind us to a proud tradition. We will be back to you with the
photo when we hang the prints....and we'll likely be wanting to buy
more in the future. Thanks also for the decals!!
