Tarisse King was born in Adelaide in 1986, ands shares the artistic limelight with her sister, Sarrita King, as both follow in the footsteps of their late father, the highly regarded artist, William King Jungala (1966 – 2007).

Tarisse King has her Aboriginal inheritance from her father, who was from the Gurindji clan in the Northern Territory. The Gurindji people were drawn into the public gaze during the 1960s and 1970s when the Wave Hill strike by Aboriginal workers on the cattle station, led a landmark case and the first successful land rights claim in Australia.

Tarisse King now has two small children of her own, and paints as often as she is able with a young family. Tarisse King lived most of her early life in Darwin, Australia’s most northerly capital city, which is subject to extreme weather conditions, from torrential rain and cyclones in the Wet Season to oppressive heat in the Dry Season.

While the features of the extreme climate are represented in her artwork, Tarisse King’s paintings mostly reflect the road trips she made between Darwin, Katherine and Adelaide, where her father resided. This journey of 3027 kilometres through the heart lands of Australia, revealed the expanses of changing landscape and gave Tarisse King the isolation and time to develop a unique perception of the land. The influence of these trips can be seen in her paintings such as the Salt Lake series.

When Tarisse King moved to Adelaide at the age of 16, her interaction with her father’s art led her to experiment with her own designs and techniques, resulting in a definable style of her own. Drawing on the Central and Western Desert Aboriginal dotting style of painting the land topographically, Tarisse King captures the complex and varied soul of the land.

In all of her artworks, Tarisse creates a contemporary representation of her ancient heritage and allows the present day viewer an accessible moment to consider the past.

From her early 20s Tarisse King has been a full-time artist, participating in over 20 exhibitions across Australia and in Europe. Her work is found in high profile Australian and international art collections.
