When looking for some video clips on Aoudla Pudlat I found this clip on a young artist of thirteen, David Pudlat. He shares with us his insights on creating art. Since both artists are Inuit, and in fact may be related, I decided to share this interesting clip:
The artist first participated in the Cape Dorset annual print collection in 1980.
Aoudla Pudlat was wonderful draftsman with a gift for creating art, both two and three dimensional, with birds. His birds have a great feeling of life, as if they just got out of a birdbath and are shaking themselves off.
