Mathew Nuqingaq drum dancing

In 2013, artist Mathew Nuqingaq travelled to Toronto from his hometown of Iqaluit, Nunavut to join us in celebrating the one year anniversary of Feheley Fine Arts in our new location at 65 George Street, Toronto. Nuqingaq is an artist, renowned as a jeweller, sculptor, photographer, and drum dancer. He founded the Aayuraa Studio in Iqaluit, which provides a space for artists and jewellers to create in the Arctic. In this video, Nuqingaq performs a powerful Inuit drum dance alongside drawings by Tim Pitsiulak and a walrus skull sculpture by Adam Alorut.
