PROJECT fom Iqaluit youth


Jonathan Cruz of Nuschool Design Agency (Nuschool.ca)—a design firm based in Iqaluit, Nunavut— organizes group-empowerment art projects like this one in many remote northern communities. The group hopes to work collaboratively with a handful of communities in Nunavut and Northern Quebec in the spring and summer of 2011.


Alexa Hatanaka creates work using both modern


and traditional materials and processes. She paints large scale murals with aerosol paint, hand-weaves original cloth, makes paper by hand, and uses the print processes of woodblock printing, etching, screen-printing and lithography. She is interested in


balancing time-intensive traditions with contemporary interests. She is currently learning traditional Chinese printmaking in Nanjing.


Patrick Thompson’s definitive quality is process.


He has never been shy about trying new materials and discovering the potential that can only be found in experimentation and a playful attitude. His interest in visual language began with painting graffiti fanatically as a youth. Painting outdoors in many environments and on many surfaces has since been integral to his improvisational expression and limitless application of materials.
