(1948 - )
Goyce Kakegamic was born in Sandy Lake, Ontario. Both Goyce and his brother Joshim were influenced by their brother-in-law Norval Morrisseau and Cree artist, Carl Ray. Both self-taught, they began painting in their teens and by the early seventies became recognized as professional artists in their own right. Both artists literally exploded onto the contemporary art scene, impacting it, and their own communities, with great fervor. Goyce illustrated the heritage of his people and the legends of the Ojibway people. Today, their works can be found in the numerous public and private collections throughout North America and Europe, including the permanent collections of the Museum of Civilization and the McMichael Canadian Art Collection.
