Roy Thomas

Roy Thomas, an Anishinaabe painter was one of the most influential aboriginal artists in Canada, and was famous for paintings of colourful animals and native traditions. Like Norval Morrisseau, he was a member of the Group of Seven and painted in the style of the Woodlands School of Canadian Art. His work became well known when Canadian Native art gained mainstream popularity in the late 1960s and early 1970s. He kept painting until his untimely death from cancer in 2004.
