David John Angaiak is a visual artist whose work expresses his Yup’ik Eskimo and Unangan Aleut heritage. He often depicts nature from personal experiences centered around bird and sea life encountered along the coasts of Bristol Bay, Alaska. In a world moving further from ancient knowledge, his artistry provides a glimpse of the past with a modern voice. His work has been collected locally and overseas, and is the perfect complement to your office or home.
Combining traditional and contemporary disciplines, he uses mixed media and often incorporates natural materials. Rare earth pigments gathered from riverbanks and shorelines are utilized to add color. These are applied by traditional methods passed down to him through family knowledge. Feathers and fur, harvested throughout the year, are common components within each piece. Contact him today to begin your own personal collection.
