Current Gallery of Walangari’s Beautiful, Original & Contemporary Aboriginal Art
For over 30 years, Aboriginal artist, elder, educator and performer, Walangari Karntawarra has painted his Dreamtime Stories. These are known in his language as the Jukurrpa. He either inherited the Dreamtime Story or its living custodian has given him permission to paint it. It’s like a copyright.
Walangari is an international award winning artist with a unique style. He is the living custodian of the “Blue Lightning Dreaming” and as such, is the only artist permitted, under traditional Aboriginal law, to depict this Western Desert and Central Desert Jukurrpa.
His direct family line includes the famous Aboriginal Artist and water colourist Albert Namatjira and two of the founding fathers of the Papunya Tula movement, Clifford Possum and Paddy Carroll.
Walangari was one of the first exponents of contemporary Aboriginal Art and over the years has developed a unique and inimitable oeuvre, incorporating the ancient iconography of his Western and Central Desert heritage.
The paintings for sale are acrylic on quality stretched canvas. Walangari writes the Dreaming Story of each painting on the reverse side where he also signs his work.
