Biographical Information
Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas ~ [b.1954] Canadian

In the late 1990s, after exposure to Chinese brush techniques and under the tutelage of Cantonese master Cai Ben Kwon, he consciously began to merge Haida and Asian artistic influences into his self-taught practice, and created the art form called "Haida Manga.".
