Walangkura is an Aboriginal women artist and an exciting and talented artist from Kintore in the Western Desert of Australia.
Her work is imbued with powerful energy and passion that depict creation stories and ceremonial sites associated with Tjukurrpa of her Pintupi homelands. In 1995 Walangkura participated in the historical Kintore/ Haasts Bluff collaboration Minyma Tjukurrpa and began painting for Papunya Tula Artists in 1996.
In 2005 she won the Redlands Westpac Art Prize, and was also involved in the landmark exhibition “Papunya Tula: Genesis & Genius in 2000 at the Art Gallery of N.S.W.
Walangkura’s work, although powerful, is very feminine, she often paints on a very large scale. Her use of a more muted, pastel palette on many of her works is particularly effective.
