Jon Colwell is a visual artist best known for his murals and pop culture mash ups. Jon and Marion discuss how his works come together, the process from iPad to panel, and making art a career.

Jon explains why he started creating art that fosters a sense of nostalgia in people’s minds and how he is challenging what Indigenous art can look like. Jon also shares a brief background of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation’s annual Pow Wow.

Jon also touches on his various tattoo tours across North America, his side hustle – Alive at Night, and upcoming projects.
