Kieff Antonio Grediaga

Kieff Antonio Grediaga was born in 1936 in Madrid, Spain. He has endured a tumultuous life as illustrated in a heterogeneous trajectory spanning over 4 continents. He began working as an apprentice in his father’s cabinetmaking atelier at a young age, later going on to study technical drawing, industrial design and architecture. This early formation proportioned him with uncommon abilities to envision, project and produce ideas with technical mastery. 

Enjoying a career spanning over 5 decades, Kieff’s works have been largely exhibited in galleries, fairs and institutions in Canada, the USA, Japan, Hong Kong and Europe.

Largely inspired by music, the stage (theater?) and literature, Kieff’s work has always been fueled by the quest to find himself through a study of space and time and by a relentless desire to experience, manifest and share what can be considered the state of freedom. Whether sculptural or graphic, his works are an intriguing embodiment of the lyrical relationship between mass, volumes, rhythm, movement and a profound intimate reflection on his own human condition.

Kieff lives and works in Montreal, Qc (Canada), where continues to develop new works.


He has exhibited throughout Canada and the U.S.A.: Montreal; Detroit; New York; Boston; Chicago; Los Angeles and Miami.

His work has been acquired by international museums, commissions, and private collections, notably the estate of Mr. & Mrs. Ronald Reagan, the Rockefeller Collection, The Carters, The Bronfmans, Joan Collins, IBM, Philadelphia Museum, Taipei Nat Museum and Tate Gallery London.

Daphne OdjigDaphne Odjig, Canadian Indigenous Artist and Icon Dies at 97. Click here for more details.

Odjig is frequently referred to as the "Grandmother of Indigenous Art." She has been the recipient of many awards, honours and recognitions for her works, to name a few: The Order of Canada, the Governor General's Award, and eight Honorary Doctorates. Her works have been shown in the National Gallery of Canada, The McMichael Canadian Art Collection, the Canadian Museum of Civilization and the Art Gallery of Ontario.

She established the first native-run fine art print house in Winnipeg, Manitoba in 1971. Known as 'Odjig Indian Prints,' this print house was so successful that it evolved into an Indigenous gallery space in 1974, called the New Warehouse Gallery, run by Odjig and her husband, Chester Beavon. She was also a founding member of the Indian Group of Seven. This artistic group's purpose was to promote Contemporary Indigenous art and artists.
