Artist of the moment…….Mona Ohoveluk

Mona Ohoveluk was a wonderful Inuit printmaker with a great sense of design. Ohoveluk was born in 1935 at Rymer Point, Vancouver Island, Canada.

Her grandfather was a Danish Trader who moved to Canada to experience the lifestyle of the Inuit peoples.

She was most popular in the annual print editions in the 1960s and 1970s.

Price range information: Most prints are priced from $250 to $1,000. From time to time you might find a tablecloth or placemat series available featuring the artist.

That is all the information I could find on the artist. For some artistic fun how about comparing the compositions and designs used by this artist and another artist featured recently, Tim Stoner. Both excel in making art with multiple figures. Ohoveluk’s linework is great because you get the feeling of movement and space without using a horizon line.
