‘I’m A Romantic’: Take A Peek Inside The Studio Of Haida Carver Corey Bulpitt

The Rupert-born artist is being celebrated by Art Toronto.

Corey Bullpitt describes himself as “a romantic.” The Prince Rupert-born artist and carver says “I just want to see Haida old-style culture.” From the Naikun Raven clan, his Haida name Taakeit Aaya translates to “Gifted Carver,” and it’s not hard to see why in this new video featuring a fascinating peek inside his studio. 

“He is the great-great grandson of famed artist Charles Edenshaw (1839-1920) and prolific argillite carver Louis Collison (1881-1970),” explains Art Toronto, which is featuring Bulpitt as part of Canada’s Art Fair.
