William (Bill) Ronald Reid, Jr., OBC (12 January 1920 – 13 March 1998) was a Canadian artist whose works include jewelry, sculpture, screen-printing, and paintings. Some of his major creations were featured on the Canadian $20 banknote of the Canadian Journey series (2004–2012).
Biography,Early yearsWilliam Ronald Reid, Jr., called Bill, was born in Victoria, British Columbia, his father was American William Ronald Reid, Sr., of Scottish-German descent and his mother, Sophie Gladstone Reid, was from the Kaadaas gaah Kiiguwaay, Raven/Wolf Clan of Tanuu, more commonly known as the Haida, one of the First Nations of the Pacific coast.Reid developed a keen interest in Haida art while working as a radio announcer in Toronto for CBC Radio, where he also studied jewelry making at the Ryerson Institute of Technology. His maternal grandfather first taught Reid about Haida art, and through him, Bill inherited his tools from his great-great-uncle Charles Edenshaw, a renowned artist who died the year Reid was born.In 1951, Reid returned to Vancouver, where he eventually established a studio on Granville Island. He became greatly interested in the works of Edenshaw, working to understand the symbolism of his work, much of which had been lost along with many Haida traditions. During this time Reid also worked on salvaging artifacts, including many intricately carved totem poles, which were then moldering in abandoned village sites. He assisted in the partial reconstruction of a Haida village in the University of British Columbia Museum of Anthropology.At the age of 29, Reid married a woman named Jane. They had two children together.Working in the traditional forms and modern media (usually gold, silver and argillite), Reid began by making jewelry. He gradually explored larger sculptures in bronze, red cedar and Nootka Cypress (yellow cedar), usually portraying figures, animals, and scenes from folklore. He intended to express his ancestors visual traditions into a contemporary form.Major works and awardsReids most popular works are three large bronze sculptures, two depicting a canoe filled with human and animal figures: one black, The Spirit of Haida Gwaii, is at the Canadian Embassy, Washington, D.C., in the United States, and one green, The Jade Canoe, is at Vancouver International Airport, in British Columbia. The third, Chief of the Undersea World, depicts a breaching orca and is installed at the Vancouver Aquarium. Plaster casts of these sculptures are held by the Canadian Museum of History in Gatineau, Canada.OBC ribbon
