Artist Database

About the Database

The Inuit Art Foundation is proud to present the Inuit Artist Biographical Database. This database features historical and contemporary artists from across Inuit Nunangat and southern Canada working in a wide range of mediums. Each biography includes relevant biographical information, an artist statement, exhibition and publication history, collection information and major achievements. The information on this site represents the diversity and vibrancy of the field and is both a platform for artists as well as an extensive resource for artists, collectors, curators, academics, and more.

The database is a work in progress, with new artist profiles added regularly. We encourage you to help us build a robust database containing Inuit artist biographies. If you are an artist or have information related to an artist's practice, and would like to participate in the database please register for an account.
