Markoosie Papigatok

Markoosie Papigatok


Cape Dorset, Nunavut Territory, Canada

(1976- )

Markoosie began carving as a teenager and is largely self-taught. His mother, Komajuk Tunnillie, and grandparents Tayaraq and Qavaroak (Kabubuwa) Tunnillie, were all accomplished carvers in Cape Dorset. Markoosie mainly works with animal themes, which he treats with a characteristic whimsy.
