JASON TITIAN

Jason Titian, a Nuu-chah-nulth artist of the Uchucklesaht Nation, was born in 1974 in Port Alberni to Marie Rush Samuel, also of Uchucklesaht and the late Ralph Titian Sr from Ahousaht.

Titian showed an interest in First Nations Art at a young age, with one of his first memories of art instruction being with Ron Hamilton, a world renowned Ethnologist and internationally known Nuu-Chah-Nulth artist of Hupacasath First Nation.

In 2001 Titian approached Tsimshian/Nuu-Chah-Nulth artist Ray Sim Sr. and asked him for instruction. Sim taught Titian the principles of form-line which is the primary design element of Northwest Coast Nuu-chah-nulth art. Sim, who was trained in Kitanmaax North West Coast School of arts in K'san, continues to be Titians teacher and mentor.
 

In 2006 Titian carved alongside fellow Nuu-chah-nulth artist Moy Sutherland Jr, who apprenticed with the late Art Thompson of Dididaht (Whyac at Nitinaht Lake). Sutherland encouraged Titian to expand his knowledge of his ancestral art. 

Titian is part of the younger generation of Nuu-chah-nulth artists following the footsteps of their respected predecessors, such as Tim Paul, Joe David and Patrick Amos.

The traditional values of his native heritage were an important part of Titians' up-bringing and his culture remains central to his lifestyle. He has expanded and developed his creativity into theatrical performances that demonstrate his passion for art, culture, tradition and spiritual growth. 

Titians artwork visually illustrates the mentoring and grooming by the master artists he has learned from, predominantly Ron Hamilton and Ray Sim.
