Artist Spotlight featuring Walangari Karntawarra

Aboriginal Art Directory | 12.08.08

1. Briefly describe yourself. When and how did you first become interested in art? How long have you been a practising artist?

I am an Arrernte man from Alice Springs and lived a traditional lifestyle until I was made a Ward of the State when I was 7 years old. I was sent to Adelaide for my secondary education; gained a BA from Deacon University and a B Ed from Charles Darwin University. I now live and work in Sydney.

I was always interested in art and constantly drew pictures as a child. Many of my family members are distinguished and internationally respected artists. I have made a living from my art for the past 16 years but I continue to teach and perform as a dancer and musician.
