Inuk aritst Mark Igloliorte on how skateboarding inspires his work
Mark Igloliorte is an Inuk artist from Nunatsiavut, the Inuit self-governing region in the Atlantic Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador.
He grew up in the Labrador town of Happy Valley-Goose Bay.
Igloliorte draws heavily from both Labrador Inuit culture and urban culture in his work.
Beat Nation: Art, Hip Hop and Aboriginal Culture is a Canadian exhibition featuring everything from painting and drawings to installations by indigenous artists.
Currently showing in Montreal, Canada’s Musée d’art contemporain, Igloliorte’s works in the exhibition meld skateboarding culture with Inuit symbols and traditional games like the blanket toss.
