Qavavau Manumie’s art often brings together things from real life and things from his imagination. Manumie often starts with the landscape around him, then adds new pieces that aren’t actually there as a way of creating completely new places and strange activities that may trick the viewer. Born in Brandon, Manumie is an Inuk artist who currently lives and works in Kinngait (Cape Dorset). Manumie is an accomplished and precise printmaker who enjoys the opportunity to demonstrate printmaking techniques to young artists and visitors at the studio. His stylistic abilities range from the very literal to the more expressive in idiosyncratic work that is often amusing in its depictions of Inuit legends and mythology, Arctic wildlife and contemporary aspects of Inuit life.
Framing by Superframe is available for this lot at a sponsorship discount of 35% recommend float on a mat with room around work, spacers, laquer or natural wood frame, AGUV glazing.
