Biography

Pudlo Pudlat’s (1916-1992) works blend tradition with modern technology, depicting a wide variety of subjects such as helicopters, new technology and scenes of everyday life. Pudlat began as a sculptor, and eventually took up acrylics and coloured pencils. In 1978, Pudlat’s print Aeroplane (c. 1973) was reproduced on a Canadian postage stamp. Between 1990 and 1991, the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa, ON showcased his work in the retrospective, Pudlo: Thirty Years of Drawing. Many of his works are still held in the collection of National Gallery today, as well as many other institutions in Vancouver, BC, Toronto, ON and Montreal, QC.View Long Biography and Citations
