JUDAS ULLULAQ (1937-1999)
Staying true to the region’s artistic traditions of blending comedy and the grotesque, Ullulaq expertly handles stone and bone. Like his brothers, Charlie Ugyuk and Nelson Takkiruq, his work offers a level of creativity and individuality. He influenced the next generation of artists in the region. Dancing Shaman is indicative of Ullulaq’s ability to render light-heartedness and joy in his work, manifested by his comedic approach to his artwork and life.
