John Taylor

The youngest carver in a family proliferated with talented carvers like William Taylor, Derrald Taylor, Verna Taylor and more,

His carvings reflect a hunter’s knowledge in his precise depiction of Arctic animals such as caribou, muskox, beluga whales and polar bears. His ability to capture the essence of the animal he is portraying demonstrates a firsthand intimacy with its characteristics and anatomy. His work is also inspired by his people and their culture. A familiar subject of his are Inuvialuit Drum Dancers playing in traditional dress.

In 2020, he, alongside three other sculptors, carved an enormous 5,000 pound monument celebrating the history of Tuktuyaaqtuuq, Taylor’s hometown.
