Qappik's prints depicts both animals and traditional Inuit culture, which he has learned about from his own experience and stories by his grandfathers and other relatives. Some of these relatives have been an influence on Qappik's artistic sensibilities. He has a fondness for realistic/naturalistic scenes of Arctic life; an instinctive grasp of line, form and composition; and a use of lighter coloured tones with little negative space.
