Christian Morriseau was born and raised in Red Lake, Ontario. He is the son of the renowned Woodland Artist, Norval Morriseau, and the 2nd child to follow in his father’s footsteps.

The love of art is a Morriseau family tradition. His love of this style of art was passed down to him by his father, Norval, who in turn had learned it from his grandfather Potan, who was a well-known and respected traditional Shaman. Christian learned and listened to his father’s teachings, and was inspired to begin painting in May 2002.  He paints his animal images, landscape, his family, his traditions, and his legends. Christian is developing his artistic gifts with intensity, discipline, and passion. One of his first paintings was purchased by the Minister of the Department of Indian Affairs, Robert Nault, for a gift presentation at the historical treaty signing between the Inuit and the Government of Canada, in October of 2002.

Christian also teaches the Woodland art style to both native and non-native students in Thunder Bay, and across other northwestern Ontario communities. Christian Morrisseau’s work can be found throughout Canada in Ottawa, Toronto, Thunder Bay, Windsor, Winnipeg, Vancouver and Qualicum.

Christian Morrisseau (1969-)

Artist’s Statement:

I speak as one son, an artist, and an Ojibwe. I am a born artist. This is not by accident. I work with and out of Anishnabe myths that have become the mark of the Woodland School of Art.

I have had to contend with the terrible strength of my father’s vision. I am not alone. Such was his ability, that there is hardly a Native artist who does not learn from Norval’s artistic strength.

My father taught by being. He never gave lessons. Art to him was waking in the morning. Art was revelation of the Ojibwe history. Art was getting ready for bed. I didn’t name it. I just knew it. I lived Norval Morrisseau’s art.

My brother David and I sit solidly within the scope of Woodland Art – yet we are seen as different and alone.”

Christian was born on December 11, 1969 and raised in Red Lake, Ontario. He now currently lives between Thunder Bay and Keewaywin First Nation, Ontario. He is the son of the renowned Woodland Artist, Norval Morrisseau and Harriet Morrisseau. Christian is the youngest of seven children. He is the 2nd to follow in his father’s footsteps.

Christian is an accomplished artist in his own right. His love of this style of art was a tradition passed down to him by his father, Norval, who in turn learned from his grandfather, Potan. Potan was a well-known and respected traditional Shaman. Christian spent many months learning and listening to his father’s teachings and commernced painting in May 2002. He wanted to share his gift and keep the Morrisseau’s family traditions and stories alive.

Christian paints in the Woodland style, which was developed by his father Norval, upon receiving a vision instructing him to do so. Today there are well over 400 followers, including Christian, that paint in the Woodland style. Christian is inspired to paint animal images, landscape, his father and children, his people’s traditions, and their legends.

Christian is a devout student of his father’s art, and yet continues to develop his artistic gifts with intensity, discipline, and passion. This desire and dedication are reflected in the success of his pieces, which sell well in many markets and are widely accepted by art lovers. Christian has donated works to charitable organizations including; youth organizations, Diabetes organizations, the Spirit Bear Youth Coalition The Outdoor Writers of Canada, and to the Nishnawbe-Aski Nation ‘Treaty 9 ‘ where Christian originates.

Christian also teaches the Woodland art style to both native and non-native students in Thunder Bay and across other northwestern Ontario communities. Christian Morrisseau’s work can be found throughout Canada in Ottawa, Toronto, Thunder Bay, Windsor, Winnipeg, Vancouver and Qualicum.

Live Auctions

Live auctions are physical auctions conducted at an onsite location with or without an onsite audience.

Can’t Wait For The Live Auction? Place A Pre-bid.

Buyers can place pre-bids on an individual item before it is up on the auction block. This is a convenience for bidders who don’t have time to watch the live auction. It’s simple to use. Just enter the maximum amount you are willing to pay for the item, and our dynamic “Auto Bid” feature will bid on your behalf up to the maximum amount. Should you become out bid, our system will notify you.

Auction Network’s online platform, makes it possible for bidders to participate in real-time, competing against onsite and other online buyers. A real, live person operates the software and provides a constant stream of communication to online bidders. Buyers can ask questions about individual items or the auction itself.

Live audio and video of the auction is available to all online bidders. The live auction experience from the comfort of your own home.

With Auction Network, bidders from anywhere in the world have a front row seat at all auctions running online.

A live auction without an onsite audience is a live virtual auction. In both types, buyers can bid in different ways—on site, over the phone or online. Most auctions at Auction Network use the ascending bid method, also known as an English auction. This method may require participation of a minimum of two bidders. The auctioneer calls for an opening price and buyers bid competitively in succession, raising bids usually by equal increments. The auction is over when no new bids are raised and the auctioneer calls “sold” or drops the hammer.

To place a live bid you must be logged in with a full account profile.

Timed Auction

Auction Network offers items for sale over a pre-determined period of time—usually over several days or weeks.

Buyers place bids during the event and the highest bidder at a specified closing date and time wins the item. If a user places a bid in the closing minutes of an auction the Auction platform automatically extends the bidding time frame, ensuring that the buyer willing to bid the highest always wins—no sniping here.

  • Bidding has a start and end date/time.
  • Items close for bidding all at the same time or one-by-one in equally spaced intervals—this is determined by the auctioneer.
  • All bids are submitted online.
