Alex Helin

Alex Helin, son of Native Tsimshian artist Bill Helin, was born November 11, 1987 in Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada. His grandfather was Hyemass, Arthur H. Helin, and his great grandparents Maude and Henry Helin were both Chiefs of the Tsimshian Nation.

Alex is a very talented young artist that has been creatively assisting his father in the art world since he was six years old. Mainly interested in wood carving, at the age of eight he was the youngest carver to work on the world's tallest totem pole for the Commonwealth Games in Victoria, British Columbia. That same year Alex helped his dad carve the 40 foot long Raven Song Canoe and together they paddled it to the Victoria Commonwealth Games with the Tribal Journeys Canoe Regatta.

Alex is now creating original pieces of gold and silver engraved jewellery in the Tsimshian Style. Continuing his apprenticeship with his father, Alex looks forward to creating high end art pieces for collectors all over the world in the tradition of his Tsimshian ancestors.
