Paul Bruneau came to visit the gallery and made a series of 3 exquisite Inukshuks made from Italian Carrara Marble. Absolutely breathtaking!
Made from a gorgeous slate of Carrara marble, Paul Bruneau crafted one of the most beautiful Inukshuks we have ever seen. The subtle greys, and the satin white create a soft yet sophistication effect like no other.
It's wild alien character and cosmopolitan style is ubiquitous only to Paul's elite craftsmanship, lifting his Inukshuks to a level never seen before in Northern Canadian art.
The suaveness and unmatched finesse of his Inukshuks are the absolute most divine Inukshuks we at the gallery have ever seen.
Paul Bruneau had a very hard life growing up. He was institutionalized into a dozen foster homes across Ontario. One of them in which he met the infamous - Idris Moss. It was here that the two connected, and Idris introduced Paul to Inuit art.
The animation of Paul's Inukshuks are what really makes them stand out from all other Inukshuks.
