Olooreak Etungat (1971 – )
Cape Dorset, Nunavut Territory, Canada
Olooreak Etungat is an adoptive daughter of Abraham Etungat, a well-known sculptor from Cape Dorset. Although she has taken a couple of jewelry courses, Olooreak is largely a self-taught artist who was inspired to take up drawing seeing the work of others in the community. Olooreak’s work blends the traditional and the contemporary, often in quite sensitive and unexpected ways.
