Below a time lapse clip of Jeaze Oner at work on a very creative piece. On some occasions the artist uses an object already in place in his art, giving his work a three dimensional feel. This is a great example of one these works:

Artist of the moment………Qavavau Manumie

 

Qavavau Manumie is a contemporary Inuit artist renown for his drawings of animals and people. Qavavau Manumie was born in Brandon, Manitoba in the year 1958.

The artist is now based out of Cape Dorset, Nunavut Territory, Canada.

His first solo exhibition took place in 2008. In this clip we view a show featuring Manumie that took place in 2012:

Manumie was one of the featured artist in the 2015 Cape Dorset print calendar.

Below a great interview with the artist:

I enjoy the Pop art aspect of Manumie’s art. Though he works with traditional Inuit motifs, the artist also pays homage to modern items such as stiletto high heeled shoes. From a design aspect, his work is similar in composition to Kenjuak Ashevak.
