Nuyalia Tunnillie (1987 - )

Nuyalia was born in Iqualuit on May 21, 1987. Being part of a family of carvers, Nuyalia began carving at the age of eleven or twelve. He learned by watching his brother Ashevak Tunnillie and his grandfather Qavaroak Tunnillie carve. Nuyalia is mostly famous for his dancing bears, but sometimes he also makes walruses, seals and birds. Other themes that he chooses to explore include human figures engaged in activity, mother and child, transformations, and modern arctic scenes.
