Joe Fafard
Joe Fafard was born in 1942 in Saskatchewan. His interest in drawing and sculpting began at home where he often retreated from his large family to quietly nurture his artistic talent. Following his extensive studies, Joe taught sculpture for six years at the University of Saskatchewan, Regina. In 1974, Joe began to sculpt full time in a studio in Pense, Saskatchewan. It was here that he portrayed many of the townsfolk and put this little town and himself on the contemporary Canadian art map. He received the Order of Canada in 1981. Joe is now an internationally acclaimed sculptor and printmaker who is best known for his study of bovine creatures. Joe currently resides in Regina and continues to be a prolific and highly successful artist.
