Pudalik’s parents, Aqjangajuk and Kilabuk Shaa, are Cape Dorset artists. His father, Aqjungajuk, is a renowned sculptor. Pudlalik’s brother, Qiatsuq is also a carver, as was his brother, Qavavau who died in 1991.
Pudalik was influenced by his father’s work. “I watched [my father] as he carved, he taught me. I did my first carving when I was twelve years old. It was a small seal, since then I have been carving, not all the time, but whenever I felt up to it.” * Impressed by his father’s carving style, Pudlalik has developed similar themes in his own work such as walrus and drum dancers.
