Akesuk Tudlik (1890 – 1966)
Cape Dorset, Nunavut Territory, Canada
Tudlik began carving in the very early 1950s. He carved mostly animals throughout the 1950s, including bears, but especially charming owls that influenced his son, the famous Latcholassie Akesuk. Tudlik participated in the Cape Dorset graphics program early, designing a total of six prints including the classic Bird Dream Forewarning Blizzard and the enigmatic Division of Meat.
