Waddington's Auction House Biography and Notes
Chosen for the first-ever solo public exhibition of an Inuit artist in 1970, elected to the Royal Canadian Academy in 1973, and included in virtually every major public exhibition of Inuit sculpture in the last five decades, John Tiktak is widely regarded as one of Canada's greatest artists. The British sculptor Henry Moore was known to be an admirer of his work. Tiktak's powerful and moving sculptures, with their universal themes and classic forms, easily transcend the "Inuit art" category.
