Christopher 'Day One' Carlson is an independent First Nations artist from Maskwacis, Alberta, but you can likely find him posted up with a canvas and paint marker anywhere in the province. Day One has established himself as a creator with the ability of displaying his passion for indigenous culture while blending it with modern hip-hop symbolism. Day has competed in many art battles throughout Central Alberta and has had his artwork displayed in multiple galleries. Currently his artwork can be viewed at Nipsis Cafe and Collective. 52A AB-611, Maskwacis, AB T0C 1N0.
Coming to Red Deer in 2013 with nothing but a folder of prints and a few supplies, Chris recalls heading to Slumland theatre for a hip-hop show, not knowing anybody or whether or not his artwork could possibly sell. The hip-hop community quickly took him in, alllowing One to display and sell his artwork at basically every event from then on. His live painting displays have been a popular attraction to every show he attends, often gaining him respect from not only the fans, but touring artists such as SonReal, Madchild, Emotionz and more.
