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.
