Everson, Andy

  • Person
  • born September 20, 1972

Andy Everson is a contemporary Indigenous Artist born in Comox, British Columbia. He was named Nagedzi after Chief Andy Frank, who was his grandfather. His artworks are greatly influenced by his Comox and Kwakwaka'wakw ancestries.
Inspired by his grandmother wanting to pursue his traditional culture, Everson completed undergraduate and a master's degrees in Anthropology at the University of British Columbia. His thesis was heavily influenced by contemporary Comox identity as the Comox First Nation is located on the border between the larger Salish and Kwakwaka'wakw realms.
Everson creates digitally and prints using pigment-based ink and large-format giclee printers. He also does screen printing and has experimented with carving, painting and photo realism.
Everson's art was engraved on a three coin set released by the Royal Canadian Mint. The coins had designs of raindrops, sun rays, maple leaves and a sunflower to symbolize the four seasons. The designs of the coins were: Interconnection, beaver, thunderbird, the whale, which represent land, air, and sea. The coins were made of either a solid silver with a hologram finish or pure gold. 1,500 of the gold coins were minted and 7,500 silver coins are available.
