Mathewsie Ashevak

Cape Dorset
 

Mathewsie Ashevak was born in 1983 in Kinngait, Nunavut, today know as Cape Dorset, and he currently resides in the small Arctic village.

His internationally-renowned grandmother, Kenojuak Ashevak is part of contemporary Inuit art's most famous and acclaimed printmakers and sculptors.  Kenojuak's drawings were among the first by an Inuk woman to be transferred to a template for printing.

Pauta Saila, his step-grandfather, is recognized for his powerful dancing bears, balancing on one foot, and Saila's wife, Petauloosie Saila, is a well-known graphic artist.  Pauta's work is exhibited worldwide in private and public collections.

Mathewsie's Falcon sculpture, featured in Coastal People's exhibition, Arctic Wind, demonstrates at an early age his keen sensibilites and natural skills in sculpting serpentine.
