Artist of the moment…….Alex Alikashuak

 

 

Alex Alikashuak is an Inuit artist renown for his carvings of the figure.

Alex Alikashuak was born in the year 1952.

The artist is now based out of Whale Cove, Nunavut Territory, Canada.

The artist has a pilot’s license and enjoys flying.

Like many Inuit artists Alikashuak enjoys mixing media such as antlers and walrus bones.

The artist has a great sense of economic line. With very few lines in the face, he is able to capture the spirit of a character. I am a big fan of his carvings done with walrus bone. His work has a very modernist feel.
