  • Warralong

    434km from Newman, Warralong community was established as an offshoot of the Strelley Station, and has strong ties to pastoral history, including the 1946 Pilbara strike. The closest of the communities to the coast, Warralong is also surrouded by lush waterways and green campspots. The community is centred around the school, which is where the Warralong artists set up to paint. Martumili Artists such as Biddy Bunawarrie, Lorna Linmurra, Mary Rowlands, May Mayiwalku Chapman and Doreen Chapman all call Warralong home, and like to take the Martumili staff camping and fishing when they can!

    Featured Artists: Doreen Chapman, Elizabeth Toby, Lorna Linmurra, May Chapman Mayiwalku (May Wokka), Nancy Chapman Nyanjilpayi, Ngamaru Bidu and Yikartu Bumba

  • JIRLPIPARAKU (A few old men)

    Yunkurra Billy Atkins, Wokka Taylor and Muuki Taylor were born and raised at Kulyakartu, Kuljali and Kumpupirntily in the East Pilbara region of WA. Yunkurra is the caretaker and custodian of Kumpupirntily while Muuki and Wokka are the protectors of Kulyakartu. This inherited duty is an enormous responsibility as the areas hold immense cultural importance. Last year, during the height of the pandemic, they revisited their country and painted a series of works invigorating their cultural connection. This is their story.
