John SteinsDateline: agitated artist
I am an artist, musician and former mayor of Dawson City with political ambitions that might manifest themselves if the conditions are right. I am also an organizer and activist im my community with a voice against police brutality and the governments that support it, including our own. I resent the torture of animals for amusement, e.g. rodeos, long distance dog sledding, dog fights, animal baiting, etc. I try to use my art to bring focus to these and other social issues that need attention. As a printmaker, I practice wood-engraving, woodcuts, linocuts and intaglio.
