Tim Pitsiulak

1967-2017, Cape Dorset, Nunavut

Tim Pitsiulak comes from a family of artists including his aunt, Kenojuak Ashevak, who inspired him to become an artist. The primary influence for many of his realistic drawings is the land of Nunavut and its wildlife. In particular he is drawn to whales of the north, which he represents as majestic and mysterious creatures. Recently he has also focused his work on chronicling the everyday, modern life in Cape Dorset. Pitsiulak's large scale drawings reflect his respect for the natural world.
