Mangkaja Arts has its origin in the early 1980’s when the Aboriginal Arts Board of the Australia Council sent some money to Fitzroy Crossing to build an art centre.

Mangkaja takes its name from a Walmajarri word for the wet weather shelters which the artists built in the desert during the wet season.

The next 30 odd years has seen a breathtaking explosion of works emerge from one of the most colourful and best loved art centres of the modern Aboriginal Art movement.

Major recurring themes in the artist’s paintings include the jila, jumu, jilji (waterhole/spring, soakwater and sandhill) and their creation, use and management as key living giving resources.
