HILARY WIRRI

South of Hamilton Downs

Hilary was born in Ragged's Well, approximately 40 km away from Papunya. He grew up around this area, and as a child he and his siblings (including well known artist Kevin Wirri) spent much of their time watching well-known Hermannsburg School artists as they painted, particularly Keith Namatjira, Edwin Pareroultja and Joshua Ebatjarinja.

Hilary was inspired to begin painting himself in the 1980s, and has become an established painter whose works are displayed in many private collections.

Hilary paints at Ngurratjuta and is also an accomplished guitar player.
