I like animal scenes, I would be out on the land with my father while growing up and I would visually make photographs of certain animals or certain movements. Let's say, I would make a photographic memory to snap little things and remember them and then I started to draw certain things; certain movements. I think it’s best for an artist, he or she, to express themselves in what way they want: their capabilities, their own art, their expressions, in that manner. Their own appeal comes out more. To call something art, it has to be expressed by the artist.

Andrew Qappik is an Inuit printmaker from Pangnirtung, Nunavut.
