Pintupi 9 at Gannon House Gallery

Pintupi 9 at Gannon House Gallery

We have a new collection of work recently arrived from artists Warlimpirrnga Tjapaltjarri, Thomas Tjapltjarri and Yukulti Napangati. These artists were three of the nine members of one family, know as the Pintupi 9, making international headlines on their arrival at Kiwikurra in the Northern Territory in 1984. They had lived a traditional nomadic life in the desert with no contact with the western world until this time. Since then, Yulkultji Napangati, Warlimpirrnga Tjapaltjarri and Thomas Tjapaltjarri have mastered painting very detailed interpretations of the landscape, particularly the important ceremonial or food collection areas around their homelands. They have attracted the attention of collectors and art buyers and have traveled to New York to exhibit their work. Yukultji and Warlimpirrnga’s work have been acquired by many of the major public galleries and institutions world wide and they have both won national art prizes.

Contact us if you would like to see a personalised selection of their work or you can view these beautiful paintings and read more about the artists on our website at the links below.
