Biography   Kent Monkman


Kent Monkman is a Canadian artist of Cree, Irish, and British descent who has gained recognition for his vivid, large scale and lavishly detailed historical landscapes. Inspired by the romantic paintings of Edward Church, Thomas Cole, and George Caitlin, Monkman uses a traditional American landscape to contrast a re-imagined indigenous history, commenting on the effects of colonialism and Christianity. His alter ego, Miss Chief Eagle Testickle, makes dramatic appearances bringing in the themes of homoeroticism and altered views on sexuality to his paintings. The eccentric representation of Miss Chief challenges the power dynamics between the Europeans and Aboriginals and criticizes traditional myths of contact between the two cultures.
