Joe Talirunili was born near Great Whale Reserve, Quebec in
1899. He is best known for carving, but three other subjects dominate his repertoire and have designated him "the chronicler": heavily accoutered stone
figures signifying wealth and status; stone-cut prints depicting summer or winter hunting scenes, often simultaneously; and enormous, overpowering owls,
which are a regular feature of his work. His carvings and prints, nonconformist and crudely executed, command an emotional response (and price) and have a
wide interenational representation in public and private collections such as the National Gallery of Canada, Fine Arts Museum of San Fransisco, The Winnipeg
Art Gallery and others. Talirunili is fast becoming the most sought after Inuit artist of all time. The most famous Inuit artists of the 1950's and 1960's
apprenticed with him, or looked up to his dramatic style and folk feel when abstraction was considered only a European art form.
