Biography   Aisa Qupirualu (Qoperqualu) Alasua


ROOTS
Known by various names — Asia Qoperqualu, Isa Quoperqualu, Koperqualuk, and Aisa Qupirualu Alasua — the artist referred to here as Qoperqualu was born near Puvirnituq in 1916.

WHEN AND HOW HE GOT STARTED
An accomplished carver and “early master,” Qoperqualu was encouraged to carve by James Houston in 1950, during one of Houston’s many trips along the coast of Hudson’s Bay. Charged by the Canadian Guild of Handicrafts with the task of assembling a collection of carvings for sale in the South, Houston influenced many to try their hand at carving. Qoperqualu recollects his chance encounter with Houston, recalling: “I made a little walrus by cutting off the tip from our qulliq [stone lamp]” (Qoperqualu in Wight 2006: 123).
