Artist of the moment…Johnny Kataluk

Johnny Kataluk is another master Inuit carver born in the Arctic Quebec region of Canada in the 1937. Kataluk is a very prolific and some favorite subjects include birds, shamans, and bears.

price range information: Works range from $500 to $4,000.

The artist moved to the Cape Harbour, Nunavet Territory, Canada as a young child. Its a collection of Inuit peoples from all over the region. In the original camp at this location in 1902, most of the inhabitants died brought on by disease by whalers that came from Europe. It has since been rebuilt and has artists like you find in Baffin Island or Cape Dorset, but the area is less commercialized and many great artists are still relatively unknown, so time to get them some more attention!

Kataluk has been working as an artist for more than four decades.

Johnny Kataluk enjoys working with soapstone, limestone, and whalebone.
