Phillip John Charette

Phillip John “Arnaqaq” Charette is a mixed-media artist of Yup’ik and French Canadian heritage, whose Native name means “the one who is dangerous.” He specializes in sculpture, Yup’ik spirit masks and Native musical instruments, but has maintained a longstanding relationship with Crow’s Shadow Institute of the Arts, where he has created prints rich with both texture and symbolic meaning. One monotype from his 2008 “Medicine” series won first-place for print monotypes and best of show in the graphics division at the 2008 Santa Fe Indian Market, as well as best of show at the 2008 Crossroads Regional Open Art Show in Baker City, Ore.
