Muuki was born in 1945 at Wayinkurungu. His family walked across the entire Great Sandy Desert, north to Joanna Springs and south to Parnngurr. Muuki is a very senior and knowledgeable Martu man and is often called upon as an authority by other artists. He works as a senior cultural advisor for local Martu ranger group, Kanyirninpa Jukurrpa, providing invaluable cultural advice and guidance.


Muuki paints Kulyakartu country and the country all around Wirnpa, a major ceremonial meeting place in the north. His works are encyclopaedic, detailing all aspects of country from vanished roads to living water sources.


Born c. 1944
