Ashevak Adla

Based in Kinngait (Cape Dorset, NU), Ashevak Adla began sculpting at 11, inspired by his grandfathers Audla Pee and Kalai Adla. As a teenager, he learned many techniques by watching master carver Kiugak Ashoona and Nuna Parr. Specializing in dancing bears with distinguished features and poise, bird masks, and whimsical sea mammals, Ashevak Adla developed his style and rapidly established himself as a respected and talented sculptor. His carvings are among the most sought after of the young generation of Inuit artists.
