Isaci (Isacci) Etidloie

Isaci (Isacci) Etidloie

Inuit

Cape Dorset, Nunavut Territory, Canada

(1972-2014)

Isacci is the son of carver Etulu Etidlui. His grandparents Etidlooie and Kingmeata Etidlooie were noted graphic artists and sculptors in the early days of Cape Dorset art. Isacci has been carving since he was seven, and his favourite subjects are generally people in motion, whether fishing or drumdancing, always with a sense of movement. Recently, he has been making elaborate containers that incorporate both figurative elements and a whimsical sense of humour.
