Kangeq was an Inuit artist from Greenland. He made a number of watercolor and woodblock prints, illustrating the history of Greenland. As Kangeq was also an oral historian, he was able to pictorialize legends, often only known to his people. He also provided an account of conflicts with their Danish colonizers.
