Ulayu Pingwartok (1904 – 1978) was a Canadian artist known for drawings of domestic scenes and nature. Born in Kimmirut, Nunavut she moved into the settlement of Kinngait (Cape Dorset) in 1959 where she started to draw and was encouraged to create drawings for the annual print collections.

“Pingwartok produced over seven hundred drawings in her life, and thirty of them were translated into prints for ten annual Cape Dorset collections between 1965 and 1979.”Her early prints were portraits of birds, focusing on precise depiction of feathers. She later concentrated on women’s activities, a traditional camp life and shelter such as tents and igloos.
