Aisa Amittu

Inuit

Puvirnituq, Nunavut Territory, Canada

(1951- )

Aisa began to carve at the age of ten with his father, master-artist, Davidialuk Amittu. By the time he was twelve, he was producing his own sculptures based mostly on the ancient legends told to him by his father. For many years, his style was quite influenced by that of his father, but Aisa continued to gain strength and confidence in his work.
