Kenojuak Ashevak: Birds 

Kenojuak Ashevak (1927 – 2013) is regarded as one of the pioneers of modern Inuit artFor decades, she worked out of the West Baffin Eskimo Co-operative studio, drawing alongside other renowned Inuit artists. Related prints and drawings were distributed by the co-op’s Toronto marketing office Dorset Fine Arts, and by national and international dealers.

Along the way, Ashevak gained wide renown, having her art featured on postage stamps multiple times, as well as on Canadian coins. She  completed a mural for the 1970 World’s Fair in Tokyo; received honorary doctorates from Queen’s University and the University of Toronto; earned a star on Canada’s Walk of Fame; and, in 2008, received the Governor General’s Award in Visual and Media Arts.

In recent years Ashevak didn’t just continue with the creation of prints, she worked from home, designing a stained-glass work in  2004 and moving into a new medium, large-scale drawing.
