"The art represents the life of the Sockeye, Coho, Chum, Pink and Chinook swimming against the force of the river bed; leaping to reach its destination." - Ramon Shiloh
"Leaping with our tired and determined sockeye, Salmon Spirit is a reminder their life cycle continues on.
The plight of the Salmon is constant. Weaving through territory and terrain, it’s a delicate balance of life and death struggles; where our five extraordinary salmon are drawn to spawn so their offspring have a place in the natural order of things.
We take part in its beauty, ritual and sustenance all year round, in every season. We must protect them.
We must respect their place on earth.
Or we too, will fade into extinction without them."
All posters will bear the signature of the artist.
