BIO


Michel Dumont is a queer Métis two spirited artist who enjoys breathing new life into discarded vintage tile by making mosaic pieces. Working with shattered tile mirrors his daily life of dealing with a shattered back, which drives him to make something beautiful out of it. Making outfits for local and national drag communities allows him to work around his multiple chemical sensitivity using non toxic materials. He is a self-taught artist, and occasional teacher, whose mediums include fiber arts, ceramics and unconventional materials for wearable art. He creates art daily to deal with the effects of decades of PTSD. As a son of an Indian day school survivor, he tries to honour his culture in his work.
