Born in 1955 in Butedale, BC, Lyle Wilson grew up in the Haisla community of Kitamaat Village. As a boy, he was fascinated by the work of his uncle, carver Sam Robinson. While training to be a teacher at the University of British Columbia in 1976, he was further inspired upon discovering the wealth of First Nations art at MOA. Transferring to art school, Wilson obtained a diploma in printmaking from Emily Carr College in 1986. Much of Wilson’s work explores the boundaries of tradition, and he is highly praised for his experimental and distinctive compositions.

Wilson served as the artist-in-residence at MOA for many years, and has become a major figure in rebuilding recognition for painted art, old and new. He also creates works in carved silver, wood and steel. Lyle's work has been showcased in many museums, galleries and public installations.
