ARTIST BIO

Maringka Tunkin was born around 1955 and is from the remote and renowned artist community of Amata, South Australia. Amata is located within the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Lands (APY Lands) in the far north-west of South Australia.

Maringka grew up in Amata where she attended Primary school and then moved to Alice Springs for High School. She started painting on Batik and returned to painting on canvas in 2007. 

Maringka is most recognised for her depicitions of ‘Tjala (Honey Ant Dreaming)’, which refers to her sacred Country and the natural formations within in.

Maringka is a renowned artist in her own right but is also recognised and highly regarded for her contribution in the collaborative work that she created along with her sisters Tjungkara Ken, Yaritji Young, Sandra Ken and Freda Ken Brady famously known as the “Ken Sisters”, that won the prestigious 2016 Art Gallery of NSW Wynne Prize.
