Mitjili Napurrula Paintings

Mitjili Napurrula - Pintupi artist, b. 1945 Haasts Bluff, paints distinctive Uwalki Tjukurrpa related to spear making.

Mitjili Napurrula

Mitjili Napurrula paints in a distinctive and highly recognisable way, representing the watiya tjuta tree, at times interspersed with red Sandhills. The bold shapes and designs are formed to make harmonious images of this important country at her father’s site at Uwalki, near the Kintore Ranges. Her repeated tree motifs represent the women’s side of this Tjukurrpa, showing the trees that are the source of the wood used in spear shafts.

Mitjili’s mother Tjunkayi Napaltjarri taught her some of these important motifs, drawing them in the sand in the traditional way. Mitjili Napurrula has strong connections to Papunya artists – her brother Turkey Tjupurrula Tolson and her husband Long Tom Tjapanangka were major artists in the Desert Art movement.

Mitjili Napurrula has an impressive exhibition history with regular art events dating from 1993. Aboriginal art status – Highly regarded artist.
