ARTIST BIO

Yukultji Napangati was born around 1970 near lake Mackay in the Western Desert. Yukultji is a Pintupi woman and is from the family of ‘The Last Nomads’ who made news headlines worldwide, when they emerged out of the desert in 1984 and made their first contact with the outside world. The artist then began painting for Papunya Tula Artists in 1996.

Since this time, Yukultji has continued to live a traditional lifestyle, staying connected to her Country and expressing the innate Dreaming that was taught to her through her stunning artworks.

Yukultji gained major recognition as an artist in 2005 when her work was included in the 2005 Primavera exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art. From here Yukultji’s unique style continued to develop, with the artist winning the prestigious Art Gallery of New South Wales Wynne Prize in 2018.

The artist is most recognised for her highly detailed and hypnotic depictions of the sacred Dreaming within her community, most notably depicting the Sand Hills known as ‘Tali’. Yukultji’s paintings express her relationship with her Country and the experiences she had during her early life.

Yukultji’s use of uniform dot work to create bold, intricate lines across the canvas, is just one of the reasons that this artist’s highly contemporary works are so highly sought after by major collectors world-wide!

The artist’s works are included in major collections throughout Australia and world-wide, including the Art Gallery of New South Wales, National Gallery of Australia, National Gallery of Victoria and the Hood Museum of Art, USA.
