Judas Ullulaq

Fisherman

1982
Category: 
Ullulaq followed his nephew, Karoo Ashevak, in developing an exaggerated, expressionistic style of figuration. Unlike other artist members of his family, Ullulaq generally focused on domestic subjects, which he infused with his good humour. In this work, he demonstrates how to catch fish with a kakivak and using a decoy to get the attention of the fish.
