Megan Kyak-Monteith

Last updated: February 11, 2022

Inuk artist Megan Kyak-Monteith was born in 1997 and grew up in Pond Inlet, Nunavut. She earned her BFA in Interdisciplinary Studies at NSCAD University in 2019 and currently resides in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

In her practice, Kyak-Monteith often depicts her experiences growing up as an Inuk in Nunavut and Nova Scotia. Her works, centred around memory, are often exaggerated with scale and colour, adding an atmosphere that is similar to what she thinks distant memories appear.

Her illustrative works include books published by Inhabit Education and articles published in Inuit Art Quarterly, Inuktitut Magazine and The Walrus.
