Nicotye Samayualie

Nicotye Samayualie

Inuit

Cape Dorset, Nunavut Territory, Canada

(1983- )


Nicotye Samayualie was born on November 23, 1983. She is the daughter of Kudluarjuk Ashoona and Johny Tunnillie Samayualie. Nicotye’s grandmother, Keeleemeeoomee Samayualie was a well known graphic artist whose prints were represented in the Cape Dorset annual print collections throughout the 1970s and ’80s.

Nicotye is fascinated by patterns and arrangements of disparate objects in nature and man-made materials. Many of her drawings depict everyday items such as the contents of a pantry shelf, a table of shiny fishing lures or boxes of camping supplies.

Nicotye has had her original drawings shown at the Toronto Art Fair and in 2013 her work was featured in an Italian publication, “Annie e le Altre”, an ambitious scholastic study that explored the role of women artists in Cape Dorset.
