WARMUN ART

WARMUN ART

Warmun Art Centre was established in 1998. It is located 200km south of Kununurra, Western Australia, in the spectacular surrounds of the East Kimberley.

The Gija artists of Warmun paint their country using only ochres dug from their land. Each canvas is painted using hand-collected and crushed natural pigments in a luscious array of earth tones. Artworks from Warmun draw on traditional Ngarrangkarni (Dreaming) stories as well as on contemporary experience, helping maintain cultural connections to country and keeping stories alive in a rapidly changing environment.

The national and international reputation of Warmun art is due in great part to the leadership of Gija artists such as Rover Thomas and Queenie McKenzie. Today a new generation of artists, including Mabel Juli, Lena Nyadbi and Phyllis Thomas are rendering and re-presenting their culture with confidence and diversity. Their work transcends cultural boundaries and places Warmun art and artists at the forefront of contemporary art in Australia.
