Kyle Aleekuk is a self-taught visual artist from Edmonton, AB. Inspired by the bold colours and style of the printmakers of Uluhaktok (Holman), including his grandfather Peter (Aliknak) Banksland and great aunt Agnes Nanogak Goose, Aleekuk adds his own contemporary twist by incorporating elements of classic tattoo art in crisp watercolours and India ink. He is currently a Program Officer at the Inuit Art Foundation.
