Pitseolak Niviaqsi  (ᐱᑦᓯᐅᓛᖅ ᓂᕕᐊᖅᓯ)(1947- 2015)
“Pitseolak was born to artists Kunu and Niviaksiak both of whom contributed to the early Cape Dorset collections.  He was probably introduced to lithography by his elder brother, Qiatsuq, who started working in the printshop in the early seventies.  Pitseolak’s aunt and uncle are well-known artists, Lucy and Tikituk Qinnuayuak.  He has participated in the lithography program since its inception in the early seventies, initially as an assistant to Pee Mikkigak, his brother Quiatsuq and Bob Patterson, who was acting arts advisor at the time.  His name appears on 205 prints in sixteen annual collections, more than half of which are lithographs. In 1977 Pitseolak, Wallace Brannen, then supervisor of the litho shop, and Jimmy Manning, assistant arts advisor, travelled to Holman Island to introduce lithography to the resident printers.”
