One of life’s most rewarding experiences is collecting fine art, and sometimes it’s best to take a little more time to make these acquisitions with ease. We understand and want to do everything possible to make collecting your next artwork more comfortable. At Coastal Peoples Gallery, we offer an interest-free layaway program and offer flexible terms which can be customized to your individual needs.
Qavavau Shaa was born May 31, 1964 in Cape Dorset, the largest art producing community in the Arctic. He was the son of the well-known sculptor, Axangayu Shaa, and had many other family members who worked as artists. His mother, Kilabuk, and his brothers, Pudlalik and Qiatsuq, are also carvers and painters. Although Qavavau passed away at the young age of just 27, his artwork can still be found in galleries across Canada, and in private collections around the world.
