Share

Artist Jolly Atagooyuk was born in Qikiqtarjuaq but lives and works in the community of Pangnirtung in Canada’s eastern Arctic territory of Nunavut.

He’s a longtime part of the Uqqurmiut Centre for Arts & Crafts and is known for both his drawing and his printmaking.

In this 2011 conversation with Eye on the Arctic’s Eilís Quinn, Atagooyuk talks about how Nunavut’s wildlife sparks his imagination and how different printing techniques help images come alive on the page.
