Pitseolak Koperqualuk

One original hand-carved sculpture by Inuit artist, Pitseolak Koperqualuk. One inukshuk carved out of serpentine.

Born in Kinngait (Cape Dorset, NU)

Pitseolak Koperqualuk is an Inuk artist originally from Moose Factory (ON), who is now based in Kinngait. He is a sculpter who specializes in carving inukshuks.

He lives mainly from the land, hunting and fishing.

Pitseolak takes pride in carving in the traditional way; by recovering his own stones that he finds in open pit mines on Baffin Island. He mainly carves marble or serpentine, a local stone found in open pit mines in Nunavut. Serpentine is a rock similar in composition to jade. Just like jade, it is a very hard stone, so it takes a lot of artistic vitality to carve it.

Nowadays, his work can be found in many galleries across Canada.
