Artist of the moment……….Napachie Sharky

 

Napachie Sharky is an Inuit sculptor born in Cape Dorset, Nunavut Territory, Canada in the year 1971.

His father and grandfather both drowned to death in 1979. His mother is also an artist, Ragee Killiktee.

The artist has a brother already profiled here, Toonoo Sharky, who is also an accomplished artist.

Napachie Sharky carves a wide range of subjects including Inuit people on motorcycles and snowmobiles. Sharky is best known for his work featuring birds. Most of the works completed by the artist use serpentine stone.

Price range information: Sorry none available.

Napachie Sharky comes from another very artistic Inuit family. Its interesting that Napachie and his brother Toonoo Sharky both specialize in wildlife and birds, but Napachie’s birds are much more subtle in their captured behavior.
