Art and Inuit Art Foundation Grants with Kyle Natkusiak Aleekuk
Host Margaret Elias welcomes Kyle Natkusiak Aleekuk to the show, all the way from Edmonton via video call. Kyle shares his story of becoming an artist with us, as well as his current position as grant programs officer at the Inuit Art Foundation. He also takes us through a current grant program available to Inuit artists across Canada through the IAF. LIVE on March 8th 2023, on the Tunnganarniq Show.
Born and raised in Edmonton, AB, Kyle Natkusiak Aleekuk is a mixed Inuvialuk freelance writer and self-taught visual artist. Inspired by the bold colours and style of the printmakers of Ulukhaktok (Holman), Aleekuk adds his own contemporary twist by incorporating elements of classic Americana and Japanese tattoo art in crisp watercolours and digital media.
