Tim Pitsiulak: The Artist and the Man

The drawing was commissioned by the building’s owner, Cadillac Fairview, and was installed in 2014. At 12 x 8 feet, it is the largest drawing Tim made, featuring a pod of bowhead whales flanked by the smaller, white beluga whales that often accompany the bowhead. The water is a striking shade of turquoise blue-green, and the effect of the aerial view is of undulating waves of whales, ascending and descending through the Arctic waters; graceful, silent and timeless.
