About the Artist
Que Rock; Manitou Nemeen (Quentin Commanda) is a Nipissing First Nation-born artist. Through traditional Ojibway and Odawa ways, teachings, approaches, and ceremonies in visual healing art forms, he learned painting, dancing, leatherwork, and storytelling techniques. As a traditional Anishnawbe first nations graffiti artist, Que interprets daily interactions, the city, and his culture, while depiction of nature and animals bring meaning and connection to life.  He says, “working on murals allows [him] to engage in the community, bring people together and inspire others”.
