Pudlat, Oshoochiak

Cape Dorset

1908-1992

"It was not until September of 1980 that [Oshutsiak] first requested drawing paper, stating that he'd 'like to try'. At the suggestion of Terry Ryan, [Oshutsiak] tried his hand at illustrating his brother Simeonie's memories of establishing a Lapland reindeer farm in Amadjuak in 1922. This produced a series of remarkably skilled drawings. [Oshutsiak's] works are unique in style and approach. His subject matter includes figures with massive torsos, hunting scenes, and imaginary motifs."*
Oshutsiak was the brother of famous artist Pudlo Pudlat.
