MONTHLY ARTIST SPOTLIGHT
Newgaleak (Nuyaliaq) Qimirpik (1937-2007)
Kimmirut (Lake Harbour), Nunavut

Newgaleak was a prolific sculptor from Kimmirut renowned for his depictions of muskox, when ironically there are no muskox in the area. He was the son of Ooloopie and Annie Killiktee who were both sculptors. Newgaleak was a prominent leader in the community and a renowned hunter, as well as a sculptor who carved in a variety of materials using stone, ivory, whalebone or antler. He mostly carved animals but also shamanic imagery.

Newgaleak had been exhibiting continuously since 1971 in North America and Europe and became noted with the inclusion of his several muskox in the renowned exhibition Masters of the Arctic: An Exhibition of Contemporary Inuit Masterworks that toured in USA and Canada in 1984-85. His sculptures are in the collections of many leading institutions and museums and referenced in many publications.
