(1970 – Present)

Born in 1970 in Cape Dorset, Otookie Ashoona is the son of well-known and celebrated artists Kaka Ashoona and Mayoreak Ashoona; grandson of sculptor and graphic artist Pitseolak Ashoona; and nephew of acclaimed sculptor Kiawak Ashoona. Descending from a long line of remarkably creative artists, it is perhaps not surprising that Otookie Ashoona has found success as a sculptor. He is particularly known for his elegant animal carvings, which demonstrate an affinity with his father’s and his uncle’s distinctive style.
