The grandson of Peter (Aliknak) Banksland and the great-nephew of Agnes Nanogak Goose, Aleekuk draws inspiration from the distinctive printmaking style from Uluhaktok (Holman) made famous by his relatives. Combining this graphic style with Americana tattoo art and tattoo flash, Aleekuk creates inventive images in watercolours and India ink.View Long Biography and Citations
