Pudlo Pudlat

Pudlo Pudlat lived as a hunter and made his home in small camps along the southwest coast of Baffin Island until the early 1960s. It was upon moving to Kiaktuuq during a bout of tuberculosis, that Pudlat met James Houston, who encouraged his talent. Pudlat then began a practice that would come to encompass over 4,500 drawings, 180 prints and several sculptures, many of which can be found in the Cape Dorset Graphics Collection. Pudlat, due to his illness, flew south, as well as to other areas in the north, on several occasions. The objects he encountered during his travels are prominent in his subject matter.
