RICHARD HEIKKIL√Ą-SAWAN: (b. 1956- ) BIO

Richard was born in Vancouver, British Columbia. His Mother is of Finnish descent and his Father is Cree. Adopted at two months, he grew up in Abbotsford, BC. Richard draws from his Finnish and Aboriginal biological roots as both a catalyst and a context for his diverse creative practices. Although he is a designer and painter, his first love has always been architecture. He is acutely aware of both the urban and natural spaces that surround him. It is the stark simplicity of defined lines and the gentle plunge of ergonomic curves, accented by the wild landscape of British Columbia that instills an uncanny sense of harmony in the artist. Richard graduated from Applied Multimedia in Calgary in 1998 and has been working as a graphic designer/web developer/artist for fifteen years. Richard is currently in his third year at Emily Carr University of Art and Design.

Richard currently lives in Vancouver, British Columbia.
