ENQUIRE

Warlayirti Artists is one of Australia’s leading Indigenous art centres whose artists have a reputation for producing uniquely individual and vibrant paintings.

Situated on the edge of the Great Sandy and Tanami Deserts in northern Western Australia, Balgo is a small community of around 350 people.

Warlayirti Artists, however, represents more than 200 artists across the three communities in the Kutjungka region – Kururrungku (Billiluna), Mulan, and Wirrimanu (Balgo) representing seven main language groups: Kukatja, Walmatjarri, Ngarti, Jaru, Wangkatjunga, Pintupi and Warlpiri.

The number of artists, their different histories and the variety of language and cultural groups means that each artist brings uniqueness to the canvas.

The Warlayirti Artists Culture Centre supports the passing on the dreaming stories and contemporary stories from the community through an ongoing video and photography documentation program.

Members of the community participate in this program as photographers, videomakers, editors, translators and interviewees.

In addition to the documentation program the Culture Centre supports the production of baskets, beading and coolamon making.

The Centre also houses significant cultural artifacts for the Kutjungka region.
