Artist of the moment……….Koomwartok Ashoona

 

 

Koomwartok Ashoona is one of the sons of famed Inuit artist Pitseolak Ashoona. Koomwartok Ashoona was born in the year 1930.

The artist had a wife and son who also became professional sculptors. He was based out of Cape Dorset, Nunavut Territory, Canada for his career.

Koomwartok Ashoona passed away in 1984.

His favorite subject matter included birds, the Goddess of the Sea named Sedna, and spirits.

Price range information: Sorry none available.

Its easy to see that the artist loved to draw and observe animals. His works in stone have a wonderful sense of life due to the flowing and curvy lines.

What a great example of an Inuit family that has had multiple generations of professional working artists!
