TJARLIRLI ART represents the artists of Tjukurla in the Ngaanyatjarra lands of Western Australia. The art centre is a hub of activity and creation and is positioned in one of the most remote communities in Australia. Located on the fringes of the Pintupi Lands, the artists share strong ties with the Papunya movement and have a reputation for an individual and captivating style. The art created at Tjarlirli Art resonates with the community’s deep passion for Country and culture.
In 2016, Tjarlirli Art strengthened it’s ties to Kaltukatjara, NT (Docker River) by opening a second art centre to represent the already established artists who have been painting with Tjarlirli Art for many years. Tjarlirli Art’s core business is the preservation, maintenance and promotion of the artwork of the Ngaanyatjarra, Pintupi and Pitjantjatjara people by nurturing the development of traditional and contemporary artistic practice, exploring new mediums and innovative opportunities for creative expression. Work from Tjarlirli Art is commanding the attention of collectors in Australia and abroad.
