"On a recent trip to Cape Dorset, I sat down with the artists and printmakers of Kinngait Studios in hopes of learning more about the inspirations and processes behind their work in the 58th Annual Print Collection.

I quickly learned that their artwork goes beyond aesthetics. Unlike many Southern artists, the artists from this picturesque hamlet in Nunavut seldom receive formal training in studio arts, so their artistic practices are largely informed by mentorship and collaborations with the community.

The resulting prints simultaneously embody tradition and contemporaneity, creating a captivating visual record of both history and present day culture of Kinngait."

Saimaiyu Akesuk

Saimaiyuk Akesuk was born on April 28, 1988 in Iqaluit but she has lived in Cape Dorset her whole life. Her parents are Lau Akesuk and Olayuk Akesuk who was one of the first Members of the Legislative Assembly in Nunavut.

Saimaiyuk was inspired to start drawing by Ningeokuluk Teevee while they were taking a class together at the Nunavut Teaching Education Program. Saimaiyuk’s confident drawings of birds and bears are characterized by her bold and dynamic simplicity rendered with soft tenderness and quite often a touch of whimsy.
