    About the artsit
    Reference: The Canadian Encyclopedia

    Pudlo Pudlat, graphic artist (b at Kamadjuak Camp, Baffin I, NWT 4 Feb 1916; d at Cape Dorset, NWT 28 Dec 1992). One of the most original contemporary Inuit artists, Pudlo began drawing in the early 1960s after he had moved to CAPE DORSET, NWT, leaving a seminomadic life of seasonal hunting and fishing behind him. His preferred medium is a combination of acrylic wash and coloured pencils.

    In contrast with most of his contemporaries, Pudlo has included in his imagery icons of the modern technology that has brought such profound changes to the Canadian North. In his work, airplanes, helicopters and telephone poles enter into strange interactions with the arctic landscape and its animals. A muskox rider lassoing an airplane or a loon steering a motorboat are examples of his juxtapositions. In many ways Pudlo's work symbolizes the paradoxes of the encounter between 2 cultures.

    His works are in the collections of most Canadian museums. In 1990 the NATIONAL GALLERY OF CANADA organized a retrospective exhibition of his drawings.
