MONTHLY ARTIST SPOTLIGHT
Marc Alikaswa (1928-2008)
Arviat, Nunavut Territory, Canada

Mark Alikaswa, was one of the last renowned carvers of the nomadic generation creating in Arviat with Lucy Tutsweetok, Luke Anowtalik and his wife Mary Akjar Anowtalik.

He was born near the Manitoba border, and was the son of a well-known shaman, Idjuadjuk. He resided most of his life in Arviat, except for a few years when he worked in Rankin Inlet and Whale Cove.

He began carving in 1967 and first exhibited in 1971. His art has been represented in many exhibitions throughout USA, Canada and Europe, and is included in many Canadian museum collections, as well as being documented in books and catalogues.

His rounded sculptural forms depict life on the land with his favourite subjects being mother and child, human figures and animals.
