Thanks to everyone who participated in our Exploring Cape Dorset Art Guess the Artist Contest. The correct answer is:

Shuvinai Ashoona (born 1961), Tiny People Playing with Her Hair,  2012, Ink and coloured pencil on paper, 127 x 121.9 cm, Courtesy of Feheley Fine Arts

Born in Cape Dorset in 1961, Shuvinai Ashoona is one of the most celebrated Inuk women artists to recently come out of Canada’s North. She is the granddaughter of the late Pitseolak Ashoona, the daughter of Kiugak Ashoona and the late Sorosiluto Ashoona, the niece of the late Napachie Pootoogook, and cousin of Annie Pootoogook, all well-respected artists. As part of a new generation of remarkable artists, Shuvinai has found a language of her own in the graphic arts to convey the world as she knows it. She first burst onto the art scene in 1999 with her monochromatic landscapes of the Arctic, both real and imaginary, and from there developed a personal iconography around images of eggs, cards, group scenes and modern settlement life. In the past several years, her reputation as a serious and innovative artist has grown rapidly. She has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions, and is the subject of a number of publications. Her work can be found in private and public collections including the National Gallery of Canada, Art Gallery of Ontario, Winnipeg Art Gallery, Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, and the National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C.
