Joel Maniapik is an artist and printmaker from Panniqtuuq, NU. Maniapik cites his father, local artists and comic books as the influences that led him to his own artistic practice. Maniapik started drawing with pencil before exploring coloured pencil and watercolours. He has taken woodblock printing, watercolour painting, pastel and oil work workshops to expand his practice. Maniapik’s work has also been transformed into tapestries and has been published in the Inuit Art Quarterly.
