Today we have a look at the works of Qaqtis, who’s art takes inspiration from First Nations Art and Graffiti. Qaqtis has created a series of acrylic paintings depicting the Yukon Territory – “Larger Than Life”, which is a phrase often used to describe this vast Northern province.
Qaqtis: “Larger Than Life” is an art exhibition encapsulating the history and beauty of the Yukon Territory in acrylic paint on stretched canvas. I have strived to incorporate the sights I’ve seen and rich history of the Yukon through paintings. I want people to explore the actual meaning of the words “Larger Than Life” through my art and I hope viewers will come away with a sense of what the Yukon has to offer – culturally and historically.
My paintings include various Yukon historical figures such as Jack London and well known Yukon attractions such as the SS Klondike and many more.
