Artist of the moment….Manasie Akpaliapik

Manasie Akpaliapik is another fantastic Inuit sculptor  born in Arctic Bay, Nunavet Territory, Canada in 1955.

In this clip we see one of Manasie Akpaliapik’s legendary owls. Awesome!

The artist had two parents who were renown artists in the area. His parents were  Lazaroosee and Nakyuraq  Akpaliapik.

price range info: The artist has works ranging from $1,000 to $7,500.

Learned to carve by watching his parents and his Paniluk Qamaniq.

What a great example of what an artist can be! No more information on this artist but more Inuit art coming soon!

One last piece to look at from the artist. A wonderful mixed media work with great detail!
