Inuk artist Kenojuak Ashevak is being recognized with a Google Doodle (click on link to see) today on what would have been her 87th birthday. She was born in Ikirasaq, South Baffin Island, NWT and died at Cape Dorset, Dorset Island, NU in 2013.
So I thought for PostcardFriendshipFriday, I would share some of her delightful owl designs.
and her most famous drawing
“Her early drawing regularly portrayed images she had already used in her sealskin appliqués. … Simple forms and bold outlines characterize Kenojuak’s early designs. In her later work, the birds are exaggerated and stylized, with colour and shape taking precedence over realistic documentation." (source)
