Pudlo Pudlat lived for much of his life in the Kimmirut region, hunting and fishing to provide for his family. He moved to Cape Dorset in the late 1950s, and here he began his career as an artist. His early drawings are simple outlines made with lead pencil. In the mid-1960s, Pudlo began to work with colored pencils and felt-tipped pens, and his compositions became more elaborate. Just for the fun of it, Pudlo would sometimes add decorative elements to his animal figures and create imaginary scenes.

Pudlo welcomed the influx of modem life into the Arctic. He became fascinated by airplanes, which he adopted as one of his preferred subjects, often in fanciful guise. At his death in 1992, Pudlo left a body of work that included more than 4000 drawings and 200 prints. His compositions are marked by surprising juxtapositions and indications of a subtle sense of humor.
