Ningeokuluk Teevee Artist Biography
Ningeokuluk Teevee (b: May 27, 1963 in Cape Dorset, Nunavut, Canada) is a Canadian Inuk writer and artist.
Ningeokuluk Teevee is one of the most versatile and intelligent graphic artists to emerge from the Kinngait Studios. Her unique approach to interpreting traditional legends and stories into her drawings and prints has captivated both the traditional and contemporary Inuit art collector. She is represented in the 2010 print collection with nine images.
Inuit oral tradition is the foundation of much of Ningeokuluk's work. Inspired by stories and legends told by Mialia Jaw to schoolchildren in Cape Dorset, Ningeokuluk is one of a new generation of Inuit artists who are bringing the tales back to life in graphic form. She has represented Kiviuq before, the legendary Arctic wanderer, and returns to his odyssey again this year with the strikingly bold stonecut, Kiviuq Nanuqlu
Born May 27, 1963, Ningeokuluk is the daughter of Joanasie Salomonie (deceased) and his wife Kanajuk. Her father, Joanasie, was a community leader and much loved in Cape Dorset for his sense of humour, mischief and compassion. In the fall of 2009, Ningeokuluk's first children's book was published by Groundwood Books (A Division of House of Anansi Press). Entitled Alego, it is an autobiographical story of a young girl named Alego who goes clamdigging with her grandmother for the first time and, along the way, discovers all of the wonders of the seashore.
