Carving

Jamasee Pitseolak is a talented carver, printmaker and illustrator based out of Kinngait (Cape Dorset), NU. Pitseolak began carving professionally at the Kinngait Studios during the 1990s and while feeling stagnant and dissatisfied with the expectations surrounding “Inuit Art” and his disconnect from what he was making, Pitseolak began carving electric guitars and miniatures. His works are touching, humorous and at times painful mementos of life in northern communities.
