About Papunya Tjupi Arts
Papunya Tjupi Arts is an Aboriginal owned and controlled Art Centre based in Papunya, the birthplace of the Western Desert art movement, 240km northwest of Alice Springs, in the Northern Territory. Papunya is still home to renowned senior artists involved in the beginnings of this art movement. The Art Centre was established as a conduit for their expertise and experience to be passed on to the next generation: “We really want to teach our young people to paint too, and to teach our traditional culture through painting. This is very, very important to us.” Michael Nelson AO, Artist, Founder Papunya Tjupi Art Centre, 2007. The community was established in the late 1950’s for the local Luritja, Pintupi and Anmatyerre people. During the 80’s the homeland movement saw the Pintupi people move further west with the creation of Kintore and Kiwirrkurra townships. As a result, Papunya is now predominantly made up of Luritja speakers who may know as many as 5 local languages. Traditional culture is very strong here . The art centre is named after the main Tjukurrpa (Dreaming) of the Tjupi (Honey Ant) with the local hill, Tjupi Puli, in the shape of a honey ant.
