Jasper Berehulke

Jasper Berehulke (he/him) originates from Kelowna, BC, with roots in Syilx Okanagan and Ukrainian heritage. Transitioning from the digital 2D animation industry, he has dedicated his UBC undergraduate studies to working in mainly oil painting. Going back to traditional mediums gave him insight to Indigenous and homemade paints, a generous community of punk DIYers, and queer artists just like him. Through his artwork, Jasper invites viewers to explore his reflections on the everyday, offering a unique perspective as a two-spirit and neurodivergent person. He is committed to pushing the boundaries of what queer Indigenous art looks like.
