Stan Hunt is a Tsakis Kwaguilth artist from Fort Rupert on Vancouver Island.
A member of one of the first families of Northwest Coast carving, Stan was born in 1954. He comes from a family of international stature, which includes his father Henry Hunt and his grandfather Mungo Martin. Stan’s brothers Richard and Tony Sr. are well-known carvers who mentored him early in his career.
Stan’s interpretation of the Kwaguilth style is starkly traditional. No power tools or sandpaper are used. Only traditional tools: the adze, straight knife, and curved knife are used.
Stan’s work can be found in museums and private collections around the world.
