Curtis Oland



Originally from the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia and currently based in Vancouver, Curtis Oland is a Lil’Wat-Canadian garment designer and interdisciplinary artist. His connection to his Indigenous Lil’Wat heritage, the supernatural, mountainous landscapes of his homeland, and his experiences as an international nomad have created a raw essence of subdued wilderness that celebrates and honours land and materiality. His work traverses the realms of art, fashion, performance, installation, film, and creative direction, having worked on collaboratively driven projects that allow for diverse and complex storytelling.
