Artist of the moment…..Tivi Ilisituk

Tivi Ilisituk  was an Inuit artist from the Salluit, Quebec, Canada region. Tivi Ilisituk was born in the year 1933.

The artist began to carve when he was twenty one. For him it was something to do in between hunting and fishing excursions. Many works show a man hunting or fishing. Not only does he carve a seal hunter, but he adds the ice and the seal  below!

Love the figure that is camping in a tent made from skins! Art is life, life is art!

Tivi Ilisituk passed away in 2012.

Price range information: Sorry none available.

His wife was also an artist.

Another great artistic family!
