Luke (Lukie) Airut

Inuit

Igloolik, Nunavut Territory, Canada

(1942- )

Luke began carving in 1967 to earn extra money. He learned a lot about carving stone and whalebone from his father, George Kappianaq, and Igloolik artist Pacome Kolaut. Luke prefers to work with stone because it allows him to use his imagination. He believes his work has improved and become more life-like over the years. In addition to carving he has also made tools and jewellery for sale. Luke’s interest in jewellery making and working with silver, copper and other metals was fostered by a six month course he attended at Arctic College in Iqaluit. His wife, Marie Airut, is a crafts artist.
