For more than 30 years, Mi’kmaq artist Alan Syliboy has been shaping the legends of his people into art. His paintings can be found in public and private collections from Switzerland to Australia, and across North America; he’s Artist in Residence at Dalhousie University, in Halifax. As a member of the group LoneCloud—along with his son, Evan—Alan is an ECMA-nominated recording artist.
