Please email the gallery to be notified when new work by Ohotaq Mikkigak arrives.
Ohotaq was born in 1936 and lives in Cape Dorset with his wife Qaunak, who is a carver and traditional throat-singer.
Ohotaq began drawing in the early years of the print program in Cape Dorset, and his print, Eskimo Fox Trapper, was released
in 1961. He became less involved with drawing as the community grew, working full time instead for various community agencies. Since his retirement from his job as caretaker of the Peter Pitseolak School in Cape Dorset, Ohotaq has again expressed an
interest in drawing. We were pleased to include three of his prints in the 40th anniversary collection released in 1999. Since then he has become a fixture at the table in the Kinngait Studios, working on drawings covering a wide range of themes and
subjects, including an illustrated life history.
This year’s collection includes three images by Ohotaq, all illustrating his unique drawing style and, especially in Face to Face (2009-29), his quirky sense of humour.
