Johnny Pootoogook (b. 1970) has been involved with the Kinngait Studios since childhood. Over the past decade he has placed a particular focus on drawing, generating a diverse body of work that reflects on life in the North. His subjects of local animals, people, and landscapes are executed with meticulous detail and eye-catching compositions.
Pootoogook notably turned heads with his large-scale drawings at Art Toronto in 2019. In 2021, Feheley Fine Arts presented his first solo exhibition Johnny Pootoogook: Views from Home where his drawings of grouped figures engaging in local activities captured the attention of collectors and museums alike. Graphics by Pootoogook have also been included in the Annual Cape Dorset Print Collections of 1992, 1993, and 2020.
