Tim Pitsiulak (1967-2016)
The land and its wildlife were initially the primary influences on Tim’s realist drawing style. Tim was a hunter and his respect for the natural world and its wildlife was fundamental to his artistic sensibility. Tim was particularly inspired by the whales that frequent the cold, Arctic waters - the beluga and the bowhead. More recently he had become a chronicler of the everyday, drawing large format, meticulously detailed depictions of boats, heavy equipment and airplanes – the machinery of modern life in Kinngait (Cape Dorset).
