Inspired primarily by his life experience, Luke Anguhadluq’s drawings featured traditional life, hunting and animals and scenes of celebration with drum dancing.
A hunter and camp leader throughout most of his life, Anguhadluq moved with his wife, artist Marion Tuu’luuq, and his family to the settlement of Qamani’tuaq (Baker Lake) in 1961 during a period of severe famine. He made his first drawings in the early 1960s. His unique drawing style features simplified images often depicted from several different viewpoints. His images translated perfectly into prints, which were included in every annual Baker Lake Print Collection up to the time of his death.
