Nick Sikkuark

Pelly Bay
 
Nick Sikkuark was born in 1943 and was originally from Garry Lake, Nunavut. Sikkuark was orphaned at the age of nine and taken in by the Catholic Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate. He eventually moved to Winnipeg and Ottawa in order to study for the clergy – a decision that was heavily influenced by his upbringing post-adoption.

Later, he reconnected with the Netsilik cultural and spiritual beliefs he absorbed in his early childhood and moved to Kugaaruk (formerly Pelly Bay) to become a full-time artist.

While his earliest works were drawings, Sikkuark worked primarily in walrus ivory, whale bone, and caribou antler during his years as a prominent sculptor in the 1980’s and 1990’s. He returned to drawing in 2003, however. He prefers to depict surreal landscapes – often scenes of night, sunsets, and illuminated clouds.
