Scott Plear – Artist Biography

Scott Plear

Contemporary artist, Scott Plear, was born in Vancouver, British Columbia in 1952. He received his Bachelor's degree in Science and Fine Arts at the University of British Columbia in 1976.

For Plear, the process of abstract and non-objective imagery occured through an initual experiment with watercolour: "Painting has been of intense interest to me since a very early age... My first painting experience was with watercolour. This work led me in a natural way to acrylic paint, which allowed me to play with a wider scale and texture range".

Plear's vibrant and luminous paintings that have been celebrated and exhibited throughout Canada, the United States, and the United Kingdom to resounding praise.

Plear's work can be found in both public and corporate collections.

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.
