Crystal Przybille is an award-winning artist and instructor in Creative Studies at The University of British Columbia, Okanagan. Przybille has participated in artist residencies, including in the Netherlands and Nunavut. She has exhibited nationally and in Europe. Przybille has created a number of public artworks, including several public sculptures commemorating the local history of the Okanagan. Researching for these public artworks brought Przybille to learn more about Settler/Indigenous relations in Canada, and to engage in Indigenous/Syilx-led art projects in the Okanagan. Her work includes that which explores and questions the Settler narrative. Przybille is interested in how art can function to construct and deconstruct narratives and to raise considerations for personal and public consciousness. Przybille is more broadly concerned with the human condition and the creation of artworks that strive to encapsulate and communicate aspects of our condition.
