David Ruben Piqtoukun – Artist / Sculptor

Welcome! David has worked primarily in stone, antler, bone and steel. Recently he ventured into the allure of creating with bronze.

To gain some insight into what drives and inspires David Ruben Piqtoukun, please read of his upbringing and growth in his own words – About David. In addition, the site features a documentary from the BBC, profiling David as one of only three Canadian artists invited for that project, produced as “Destination Art”.

Sculptures by David have been installed in public and private institutions across Canada. They are collected internationally. A goal of this revised site is to make acquiring works by David a better experience for the collector. 

David Ruben works can be quoted with all requirements of documentation and secure shipping needed for international buyers.
