Kavavaow was born in Brandon, Manitoba in 1958 where his mother, Paunichea, was hospitalized for treatment of Tuberculosis. He returned to Cape Dorset as a very young child and has lived there ever since.
Although not prolific, he has demonstrated a range of stylistic abilities, from the very literal to the more expressive. His thematic concerns include depictions of Inuit legends and mythology. Arctic wildlife and illustrations of some of the more contemporary aspects of Inuit life are often found in his work.
For several years, Kavavaow has been involved in the West Baffin Eskimo Co-op’s graphic arts program as a printmaker, first in the lithography studio and more recently in the stonecutting shops. An accomplished and precise printmaker, Kavavaow’s work has been exhibited within Canada as well as internationally.
