NGARUKURUWALA KAPI MURRUKUPUNI - we sing to the land

Cooee Art Leven

Final days. Ends 9 December 2023


Munupi Arts & Crafts Association is located along Melville Islands North-Western coastline at Pirlangimpi (also known as Garden Point). It is the most recently formed art centre on the Tiwi Islands. The Munupi artists, inspired by their natural lush environment and the Tiwi creation stories, are renowned for their striking approaches to colour and design. Frequently referred to as “Jilamara” (design), their artworks are created using traditional earth ochres, mixed to create a wide range of colours.
