Henry Napartuk was known as an imaginative and versitile artist. His sculpture often combined animal and human forms. He began printmaking around 1972. A bachelor, Henry lived alone in a house close to the print shop in Kuujjuaraapik. Henry’s father, Josie Napartuk (1901-1980), was also a well-known sculptor.
