Germaine Arnaktauyok

Germaine Arnaktauyok


Igloolik, Nunavut Territory, Canada

(1946- )

“Germaine Arnaktauyok is a distinct Canadian artist. The ideas for her work stem from traditional Inuit legends or from living and witnessing the unique lifestyle of her people. Her character is composed of a gentle mixture: she is a simple woman, yet sophisticated; proud, yet modest; and her background is equally a fine blend of city living and old, traditional ways. But perhaps her rare character should be expected, for it is as original and intriguing as her artistic works.”
