About Tim Pitsiulak
Tim Pitsiulak has been involved in the arts and various forms of artistic expression for many years. He began to draw in his youth and later took up carving. Born 1967 in Kimmirut, Pitsiulak has been a resident of Cape Dorset for several years and works out of the local Kinngait Studios. The land and its wildlife influence his realist drawing style but he has also become a chronicler of the everyday, with large format depictions of boats, heavy equipment and airplanes – the machinery of modern life in Cape Dorset. His career as an artist was a feature in the 2012 summer issue of The Walrus magazine. Pitsiulak recently completed a major commission for Cadillac Fairview’s TD Centre in Toronto and has a coin design in circulation with the Royal Canadian Mint.
