Shuvinai Ashoona’s dynamic compositions depict human figures, transformations and imaginary beings with cleverly hidden imagery using a wide colour spectrum.
Shuvinai Ashoona began to draw in the early 1990s. Although she was never formally trained, Ashoona’s family and the Kinngait Studios in Cape Dorset have provided her with a creative atmosphere. Her drawings are often a combination of reality and imagination in which she creates her own abstract outlook of Northern life. Through continuous experimentation with subject matter, Ashoona’s inventive drawings are consistently at the forefront of contemporary Inuit art.
