Artist of the moment….Pudlo Pudlat

Pudlo Pudlat was an Inuit artist renown for both graphic work and printmaking and also sculpture. Pudlat was born at a camp on Baffin Island in Canada.

The artist was very prolific in his output completing more than 4,000 drawings over his lifetime. Pudlat completed more than 200 prints over his career.

Pudlat passed away in 1992 at the age of 76 years old whilst living in the Cape Dorset, Nunavet Territory, Canada.

Originally a sculptor he gave it up due to an arm injury he suffered.

A great experience for the artist was having a work of art he produced used for the UNICEF charity organization on a greeting card. Pudlat was thrilled with this chance to travel south of Canada for the first time and also received great critical acclaim for his work.

Last series of his print work is included in the 1993 Cape Dorset Print collection.

Pudlo Pudlat was the first Inuit to have a one man show at the National Gallery of Canada.

price range information: Works range between $1,000 and $7,000.
