Mathew Flaherty

Inuit Native Artist Matt Flarherty from Cape Dorset

Cape Dorset

Mathew Flaherty was born on February 13th, 1998, in Iqaluit. He grew up in Grise Fiord, but has lived in Cape Dorset since 2019. He is a distant relative of Robert Flaherty, the filmmaker behind the famous movie, Nanooq of the North.

Mathew began carving at the age of seven, and is largely self-taught. His style is greatly influenced by the work of Looty Pijamini, who is a prominent Grise Fiord artist. Despite his youth, Mathew is well on his way to becoming an accomplished artist.
