Tjarlirli Art Centre 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 People’s deep passion for Country and culture.
In 2016 Tjarlirli Art strengthened its 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 & Pitjantjatjara people through 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 discerning collectors and has been acquired by a number of major collections in Australia and abroad.
