Ruben Anton Komangapik

Ruben Anton Komangapik


Iqaluit, Nunavut Territory, Canada

(1976- )

“Ruben Anton Komangapik creates work unlike most Inuit art. Although influenced by traditional stories, songs, and legends heard from his grandfather, he has a contemporary sensibility, often combining the more typical materials with precious metals and gemstones or, for example, contrasting the roughness of porous whalebone with the smooth texture of ivory. He completed the jewelry and metalwork program at Nunavut Arctic College, Iqaluit (1995), and has been a full-time artist since the late 1990s. Komangapik has been featured in numerous exhibitions and publications. Recently he was the subject of Isuma: The Art and Imagination of Ruben Anton Komangapik, with text by his mother, Dorothee Komangapik.”
