Victoria Mamnguqsualuk

Victoria Mamnguqsualuk was born in Garry Lake, NWT and moved to Baker Lake, Nunavut, in 1963 during the widespread famine and disease in the Central Arctic. Daughter of one of the most famous artists, Jessie Oonark, Victoria developed her own unique style of drawing by depicting Inuit legends and myths. Her drawings are bold, mystical, complex and filled with Inuit folklore. Her works are collected and displayed in many galleries and private collections.
