Ohotaq Mikkigak

June 1 - June 28

Feheley Fine Arts is excited to announce the upcoming solo exhibition of Ohotaq Mikkigak, opening June 1st.

Ohotaq Mikkigak (1936-2014) began his artistic journey during the early stages of the co-op print program in Cape Dorset (Kinngait). While his debut print, ‘Eskimo Fox Trapper’ emerged in 1961, Mikkigak’s consistent engagement with drawing began upon his retirement as a caretaker at the Peter Pitseolak School in Kinngait in 1999.

Throughout his career, Mikkigak embraced evolution and experimentation, particularly evident in his exploration of colour and scale. Nearing the end of his life, he began to delve into a more abstract approach, notably showcased in his large-scale drawings, a departure from his earlier, smaller-scale works. Within this expanded canvas, Mikkigak’s art transformed into a contemporary style, portraying landscapes, seascapes, and buildings in his community infused with his own distinct style. His vivid creations undeniably cement his status as one of today’s most dynamic and influential contemporary Inuit artists.

Please join us on Saturday, June 1st, at Feheley Fine Arts as we celebrate the groundbreaking works of Ohotaq Mikkigak.
