Artist of the moment…..Tarsis Pilakapsi

Tarsis Pilakapsi is fantastic Inuit artist born in Igloolik, Nunavet Territory, Canada in 1972. Pilakapsi is a highly skilled sculptor working with whalebone and antlers to carve some amazing works. Even his works that deal with myths, such as the Inuit goddess Sedna, the artist goes into tremendous detail in his portrayal of the goddess.

Pilakapsi is also renown for his work with various totem poles. In this clip we visit a totem pole ready for auction.

The artist is also renown for working with the hunter as theme. In some works he tries to show the hunter as he waits for his subject to come to the breathing hole to grasp some oxygen.

price range information : Originals range from $800 to $4000.

As the artist is just recently into his forties, look out for more great works of art from this modern master!
