Spirit Wrestler Gallery, Vancouver

Art Gallery · Hidden Gem · Museum
Founded in 1995, the Spirit Wrestler Gallery is a leading contemporary fine art gallery representing Inuit, Northwest Coast and Māori artists. The gallery focuses on exhibitions that showcase contemporary directions in aboriginal art, including cross-cultural communication, the use of new materials (such as glass and metal), and modern interpretations of shamanism, environmental concerns, and other issues pertaining to the changing world.

We sincerely believe in the cross-cultural connection between aboriginal artists and have built our reputation on this philosophy. The world is becoming increasingly smaller as artists fly in to attend overseas conferences, cultural gatherings, and artist workshops. Many of these artists are participating in art collaborations or securing international commissions. Artists communicate through their art — bridging frontiers, languages and cultural boundaries. These lines are now becoming blurred as cultures also often share similar techniques, subject matter and designs.
