Image of Autumn's Light by Brian Kon

Brian Kon is a Métis artist born in Winnipeg. He has lived and worked in Niagara Falls since 1996. His style of art is called dot art, or bead art painting, which is a modern version of traditional beadwork created by Métis people. Each "bead" is applied as a single dot of paint to create the image. Many of the designs in his paintings can be traced to beadwork found on historic clothing and possessions of Métis people.
