Qavavau Manumie (1958) was born in Brandon, Manitoba. He returned to Kinngait (Cape Dorset) as a very young child and has lived there since.
Qavavau has demonstrated a range of stylistic abilities over the years - from the very literal to the more expressive. His thematic concerns include depictions of Inuit legends and mythology, Arctic wildlife and contemporary aspects of Inuit life. Qavavau is the latest among the second generation to attract critical acclaim from the contemporary arts audience in the south. He is one of the few artists today who uses humour in his work.
