Tim Pitsiulak: Drawings and Prints from Cape Dorset
Only a handful of years into his career, Timmuuti “Tim” Pitsiulak spearheaded a new direction in Inuit art. The nephew of renowned artist Kenojuak Ashevak, Pitsiulak revelled in the challenges of art and life in Cape Dorset, Nunavut, just south of the Arctic Circle. His vivid images of polar bears and bowhead whales, ATV-riding families and high-tech research equipment, speak eloquently of the artist and the man. He quietly navigated increasing modernity while honoring his cultural identity. At the time of his death in 2016, Pitsiulak was a sought-after artist at the height of his career. This is the first monograph on the artist’s work.
