Polar bears, muskox, walrus. Using kayaks and dog teams, these are the things an Inuit hunter would see out on the tundra, the open water, & ice floes. Here, traditional hunting has provided the visuals for carving production.
Pitseolak is the son of Ningeogapik Qimirpik and the carver Kellipalik Qimirpik. He was born in Iqaluit in 1986. He began carving when he was 13 years old and has now been carving for almost 10 years. In typical Inuit traditions, he learned to carve from his father.
Pitseolakshows his work to his parents and the feedback he gets from his father only serves to make it better. He is not discouraged by his fathers' evaluation and he plans to continue carving for the rest of his life.
Born on July 27, 1986 in Iqaluit, NU. Nationality is Inuit
