Shuvinai Ashoona ( born in 1961) is a third-generation Inuit artist based in Kinngait, Nunavut, Canada. Best known for her highly personal and imaginative iconography, Shuvinai Ashoona’s imagery ranges from closely observed naturalistic scenes of her Arctic home to monstrous and fantastical visions.

Existing somewhere between dystopic and utopic, Shuvinai Ashoona’s earthly and extraterrestrial worlds exist within a kinder intergalactic future. The book provides insight into her practice, with essays from Canadian and international authors, reflections on specific drawings, a select exhibition history and large-format illustrations, including installation images from The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery, Toronto, Canada.
