We are excited to announce Trevor Snook as the winning artist of our torch wrap design contest!
The design had to reflect travelling and connections, the interconnectedness of the communities in the Wood Buffalo region and celebrate everyone’s time to shine.
The winning design will be unveiled at a later date and will be reproduced by a graphic designer to become a vinyl wrap on the Games torch that will travel from Fort Fitzgerald, Fort Chipewyan, Fort McKay, Anzac, Janvier, Conklin, Saprae Creek and Fort McMurray as part of the Torch Relay.
Meet the artist!
Trevor Snook is a gifted artist from the Flat Bay area in Newfoundland. While he usually paints with oil on canvas or hardboard, Trevor explores a variety of mediums such as antler sheds, helmets and even motorcycles.
Drawing on his Mi’kmaq (First Nation) heritage, he also creates culturally based crafts and tools, such as animal calls and snowshoes.
His broad creativity and resourcefulness comes as no surprise to friends and family. Many say that he gets his creative side from his grandfather, Anthony White, who was a well-known carpenter and spruce root basket maker.
