Johnny Inukpuk began carving in the early 1950's and his sculptures reflected both the austere and loving realities of life.
His work received recognition as part of an exhibition of Inuit art known as The Coronation Exhibition held at Gimpel Fils in London, England in 1953.
In 1978, Inukpuk was made a member of the Royal Canadian Academy of Fine Arts. A prolific artist, he was still carving well into his later years.
