Artist of the moment…..Eva Aliktuk

Eva Aliktuk was a fantastic Inuit sculptor born in the Arviat, Nunavut Territory, Canada in the year 1927.

The artist passed away in 1994 at the age of 67 years old.

Many of her children became professional artists.

As an artist I just love the way she incorporates beadwork into her sculptures. What makes the Inuit are so fascinating is that its a statement on the current culture of the Inuit, as much as the past. Not only is a sculpture from this artist  a great work of art, but a great history on the Inuit peoples of the region when you include their beadwork in the sculpture.

Price range information: Sorry none available.

No more information on this artist but more Inuit artists coming soon!
