Artist of the moment….Leo Angotingoar

Leo Angotingoar is an Inuit artist from the Salliq or Coral Harbour, Nunavut Territory, Canada  born in the year 1953. He comes from a family of artisans as both parents and sister are working artists. Leo lives in Coral Bay whilst the rest of his family lives in the Repulse Bay area.

Has stayed true to Inuit roots by using whalebone. I did some research and these works are prohibited from leaving Canada. That is why the Inuit work so intrigues me, not only is a work of art, but it is an artifact. A time capsule of an animal that actually lived during our time period.
