The iconic prints of late Canadian artist Kenojuak Ashevak (1927-2013) almost single-handedly came to define Arctic art both in Canada and on the world stage. Her work is found in prestigious museum and private collections around the world. Her images have been featured on everything from stamps and Canadian currency, to the stained glass windows at John Bell Chapel in Oakville, Ontario. In this 2010 conversation filmed at her home in Cape Dorset, Nunavut, Ashevak said down with Eye on the Arctic's Eilís Quinn to discuss her work, her success and what she really thinks about the next generation of northern artists.

Kenojuak Ashevak was a matriarch of modern Inuit art. Raised on the land in an isolated Arctic community, she went on to break artistic gender barriers, set sales records, and lead her people through profound social change.


Kenojuak became known as a bird artist—the bird artist of Cape Dorset—and created complex, rich images with intertwining, overlapping, and flowing forms. She was innovative, with an intuitive sense of composition and an instinct for depicting the interconnectedness of all living things. She lived a life of resilience through personal tragedy, and she created beauty and joy through her prolific art.

Kenojuak Ashevak: Life and Legacy is the companion to the traveling exhibition of the same name, presenting dozens of Kenojuak’s prints side by side with their original drawings. In English, French, and Inuktitut, a foreword by Kenojuak’s daughter Silaqi Ashevak introduces readers to life with her famous mother, and an essay by curator Leslie Boyd provides a full, touching history of this pioneering artist of the Far North.
