The up-and-comer – Ningeokuluk Teevee

There’s little consensus on what the future of Inuit art will or should look like. But there’s one thing almost everyone can agree on — Ningeokuluk Teevee will certainly be part of it.

Her work has broad appeal; collectors of traditional Inuit art snap up her work depicting ancient legends while those looking for edgier northern art gravitate to her drawings depicting contemporary life in the North.

She admits she’s not a big fan of doing interviews when everything she has to say is already out there in her work. But she sat down with Eye on the Arctic anyway to discuss how climate change is affecting Cape Dorset and increasingly inspiring her art.
