William Noah’s drawings, paintings, and prints depict his love for the land, animals and Kitchecut area. Born in 1943 in Black River, Noah currently resides in Baker Lake where he has cemented himself as a key figure not only in the studio, but as a prominent member of the community. He acted as a territorial level politician and a member of the Northwest Territories Legislature in the early 1980s. Noah, along with four other artists formed a collective entitled the Art and Cold Cash Collective. Together they held a number of group exhibitions.
He established him prominence as a graphic artist in the very earliest Baker Lake Graphic Collections. Noah is the son of renowned artist Jessie Oonark and brother to accomplished artists Nancy Pukingrnak, Victoria Mamnguqsualuk and Janet Kigusiuq.
