Features the artwork of Canadian artist Carlito Dalceggio!

Born in Quebec in 1971, Carlito Dalceggio knew from an early age that he would lead a unique path in life. In tandem with studies in graphic design at the Université du Québec à Montréal, he began to work seriously as an artist from his late teens. His artistic education extended to global travel in a quest to absorb syntax from the art traditions of other cultures, including those of certain countries in Africa (Mauritania, Morocco), Asia (Bali, Thailand, Cambodia, India), Turkey, Mexico and Brazil. Throughout his career, he has partnered with artists from around the world, establishing and participating in art collectives and working in virtually every medium, from fine arts, fashion and circus arts to photography, literature and film.

In the Artist's Words
"This design is how I envision and depict my roots, my country, and its relations with a higher level of consciousness. By treating tribal symbols in a contemporary way, I blend the ancestors and the future. This is a circular narrative composition with no starting point: the image can be approached from any side. Curves and linear elements intermingle to create a dynamic fountain of life. This piece represents the fusion and harmony of humanity and nature, essential elements defining Canada, and the importance that these linkages continue to grow in the future. It is a message of universal peace, of harmony and union. The coin design represents the alliance between nature and humanity and is a reminder of cycles and time: what is contemporary now will be ancient someday."
