ARTIST STATEMENT
Marco Muller: "Acknowledging that Winnipeg is on Treaty 1 land and one of the most Indigenous populated cities in Canada, for this public art project I aim to create a work of art to 'reclaim' space as well as imagery. For years the image of Indigenous peoples has been appropriated in countless ways. Advertising, clothing, product labels and children's toys. By using the image of a plastic Indian toy, I will be claiming this image and to show the resilience of Indigenous peoples. I plan to paint this image repeated in a variation of colour schemes."

Marco Muller is a member of the Mathias Colomb Cree Nation (Pukatawagan Treaty 6), who is currently completing his third year of a four-year Bachelor of Fine Arts Honours degree at the University of Manitoba, School of Art. Marco works in a variety of mediums, such as print media and oil paint. His work is heavily influenced by Indigenous activism and socio-political problems within the Indigenous communities.
