Vince Bomberry

Faces Iroquois Art Sculpture in Soapstone

Born: 1958    Male

Vince Bomberry is from the Six Nations Reserve in Brantford, Ontario. He is a member of the Wolf Clan of the Onondaga Nation. Bomberry’s artistic career began while he was in his teens.

In his sculpture and carvings, he combines contemporary styles with traditional Iroquoian motifs and concepts, thus creating modern interpretations of Iroquoian culture. Whether he represents a portrait, a human figure in whole or a group representation, the intricate style of Bomberry inspires conversation.

His works are in private galleries, as well as national art collections such as the Native American Centre for the Living Arts (Niagara Falls, NY), the Canadian Museum of Civilization (Gatineau, QC), Indian and Northern Affairs (Gatineau, QC), and the Woodland Cultural Centre (Brantford, ON).
