Padlaya Qiatsuk

Padlaya Qiatsuk


Cape Dorset, Nunavut Territory, Canada

(1965- )

One of the three sons of master carver Lukta Qiatsuk, Padlaya began carving at the age of twelve and credits his father and other elder carvers as influences. From his father, he learned a deep respect for the land, and this admiration shows in his treatment of wildlife subjects. He says that he has fun making art, and he likes to carve figurative works, with transformational themes being his favourites.
