Tony is the son of artist, Kellypalik Curley. He is known for his serpentine carvings that are highly representative of Cape Dorset art. Tony’s work is naturalistic, showing the inspiration that he gains from the Arctic landscape. Tony has been exhibited worldwide, such as in Arctic Forms: Inuit Sculpture at Arctic Inuit Gallery in Richmond, Virginia (1988); Inuit Sculpture at Gallery Marie-Luise Wirth in Zurich, Switzerland (1993); and Stone and Bone: The Inuit Master Carvers of the Canadian Arctic at the Sun Valley Centre for the Arts and Humanities in Ketchum, Idaho (1997).
