Born in Tuktoyaktuk, Northwest Territories
Born in Tuktoyaktuk, in Canada’s Western Arctic, Inuit sculptor and multimedia artist, Angus Cockney spent 13 years in a Catholic-run residential school in Inuvik, NT. Later, Angus ventured South to study audio-visual communications. Returning to the North after completing his studies, he began creating art based on his culture, his concern for the environment and his desire to be an educator and spokesperson supporting the Inuit art world and northern peoples.
Drawing on a rich and varied life experience, Angus Cockney works with stone and other media – traditional in form but with a flexibility of thinking that embraces contemporary topics. “I’m a Canadian artist”, Angus says. “I like to explore new media because through knowledge, comes power.”
