Famed artist Henry Evaluarjuk (1923-2007) was born in Igloolik and although he has lived in various communities throughout the Arctic, Iqaluit was his home. His highly popular, stylized bears are likely the result of his hunter's memory for animal form combined with the influence of the varied communities he traveled to.
