Toonoo Sharky - Sculptures
The Inuit Gallery of Vancouver is delighted to play host to the renowned Cape Dorset artist Toonoo Sharky during his short stay in conjunction with the 2010 Winter Olympics.
Born in 1971, Toonoo’s artistic talents were evident at an early age, garnering a great deal of attention while still in his teens. Over the years he has created an impressive body of work using the luscious Baffin Island serpentine as well as the marble found locally. His subject matter is transformational in nature, with an emphasis on spirit figures. These multidimensional creations depict animal-bird-fish combinations in a myriad of sizes. The Inuit Gallery is pleased to have available a select grouping of his recent carvings available immediately. If you are in our area we invite you to view them and have an opportunity to meet with the artist in person. Toonoo will be in the gallery Thursday, Feb. 11, 12 and 13 between 1 and 3 pm each day.
If you are not able to attend in person, we would be pleased to share additional images of any of these works, please contact the gallery at your convenience.
