Noo Atsiaq

Cape Dorset
 

1985-2013

Noo Atsiaq was born in Iqaluit (Frobisher Bay), Nunavut in 1985 and spent his life in Cape Dorset. Sadly, he ended his life in 2013, leaving behind his parents, Alashua Atsiaq and Piulia Pudlalik Atsiaq. Noo began carving at the age of 11, and “never missed a day!” since then. Similar to many younger artists, he came from a family that was part of the original art makers of Cape Dorset. He learned by watching his elders carve, in particular his father, Alashua.

Following in the footsteps of his ancestors, Atsiaq strove to carve in his own style. His work embodies a fluid sense of movement – incorporating the inner nature of each piece of stone he worked with. Skilled at creating rounded lines, Noo’s use of positive and negative space gives his work a strong sense of presence and design. He carved all subject matters, but became particularly well-known for his walking and dancing bears.
