Sarrita King

Japingka Gallery presents paintings by one of Australia’s young rising stars, Aboriginal artist Sarrita King. Sarrita had her first art training as a teenager with her artist father, the late William King Jungala (1966- 2007). Having exhibited twice before at Japingka Gallery, Sarrita King continues to define her artistic identity, steadily creating a contemporary style with cultural references that connect land, experiences, family and traditional ideas of communication and kinship. Sarrita King’s paintings are homages to the important first generation of Aboriginal artists who have laid down a path for succeeding generations.

Sarrita King was born in 1988 in Adelaide, and has an older sister and fellow artist Tarisse King. Sarrita King inherits her Australian Aboriginality from her father, William King Jungala, a Gurindji man from the Northern Territory. The Gurindji people came to be known by the Australian public during the 1960s and 1970s when their group working at Wave Hill cattle station led a landmark case, the first successful land rights claim in Australia. Similarly Sarrita King inherits an assertive individuality, determined to communicate the inseparable connection she and her ancestors have with the Australian land.

Sarrita King lived her early life in Darwin and it was there that her connections to her Aboriginality and her land were first nurtured. The extreme weather and primal landscape of the tropical north provided strong subject ideas for her first paintings, developed when Sarrita was sixteen.

Sarrita King paints using traditional Aboriginal symbols and techniques, but she also combines them with innovative and unusual techniques passed on to her from her father, as well as ideas she has developed through her own working methods.

Sarrita King has been involved in over twenty exhibitions, and is represented in galleries in all Australian states, and in major Australian and international art collections. A selection of paintings by Sarrita King is available from Japingka Gallery, where collectors can buy Aboriginal art online with certainty of quality, authenticity and provenance of art works.
