Collection: Quvianaqtuk Pudlat
Quvianaqtuk Pudlat (b. 1962, Kinngait/Cape Dorset, Nunavut) is the son of Odlureak Pudlat and Ningeosiaq Pudlat, who were both printmaking artists. His grandfather Simeonie Quppapik was a well-known artist, printmaker and typographer. For many years, Quvianaqtuk was a respected sculptor and his carvings of animals and birds are in many important collections. Recently he began drawing and several of his prints have been included in the 2017 and 2018 Cape Dorset Annual Print Collection.
His graphic work has been exhibited at the Inuit Gallery of Vancouver, Feheley Fine Arts in Toronto and Highpoint Centre for Printmaking in Minneapolis. Quvianaqtuk is the 2020 Inuit artist-in-residence at Open Studio in Toronto.
