Napachie Sharky

Born: 1971
Died: 2018

He was born in Cape Dorset, Nunavut Territory in 1971. His mother is Ragee Killiktee, a carver and the daughter of master carver Kuppapik Ragee; his older brother, Toonoo Sharky, is also a carver. Despite all these influences, Napachie has evolved his own style. His interest in the world around him is evident in his range of subjects, but he is best known for his carvings of birdlife, for which his open, delicate style is ideally suited.
