NIUGIUKULU NUNGUSUITUK

1971-

Ningiukulu Nungusuituk – Born in 1971 in Cape Dorset to Eliakimi Nungusuituq and Lola Tunnillie, Ningiukulu was inspired to make art by her adoptive mother Elisapee Nungusuituq who is a respected stone carver from the region. Although she only completed her first work in 2015 – which was a drawing of a seal – Ningiukulu is rapidly becoming one of Kinngait Studios creative bright lights. Her first appearance in this year’s Cape Dorset Annual Print Collection is a sumptuously rendered kudlik in stonecut and stencil. Ningiukuluk’s remarkably refined practice seeks inspiration from the things around her, various elements of Inuit life and particularly Arctic animals.
