Arctic animals and nature are the traditional motifs that characterize the art of Cape Dorset, but most often with a graphic expression; stylization, interpretation or a distortion. The motives are immediate and with color surfaces to accommodate the graphic technique, which creates both thoughtful distortions and romantic stylizations of the motifs.

Each artwork from Cape Dorset has 2 artists behind it. An artist creates an original - a drawing.

The atelier selects which drawings are best suited for printing. A printer (the other artist) transfers the drawing to an appropriate printing technique.
