Artist Bio

Christopher Auchter

Christopher Auchter grew up roaming the beaches and forests of Canada's Haida Gwaii archipelago, and his art is rooted in the land and stories of the Haida people. Auchter studied media arts at the Emily Carr University of Art and Design in Vancouver and graduated with honors in computer animation from Sheridan College in Ontario. Auchter’s directing debut was the multi-award-winning animated short, The Mountain of SGaana.
