Ashevak Tunnillie

Ashevak Tunillie belongs to the third generation of artists in his family. Both his mother and father were accomplished carvers, and his grandmother Ikayukta was a regular contributor to the Cape Dorset print collection for many years. While mainly known for his beautiful wildlife imagery, Ashevak Tunnillie shows an equally sensitive and humorous touch with the human figure. Ashevak Tunnillie's father, Qavaroak Tunnillie, is also a well known artist in Cape Dorset.


Also known as Tunillie.
