Chantelle Mulladad

Chantelle Mulladad is the daughter of Patricia Oliver, one of Keringke Arts’ founding members. As a child, Chantelle would often come to the art centre with her mum and spend countless hours watching her work. After finishing high school, Chantelle began working at Keringke Arts. Chantelle developed and drew from the artists she had been watching her whole life and created a style of her own.

Artist statement

The artists of Keringke Arts use pattern, colour, shape and design to create vibrant paintings that depict sense of Country, culture and self. Various painters have developed this style of painting at Keringke Arts over a twenty-year period, notable for intricate detail and high colour. The shapes and designs may have features common to ancient rock art and petroglyph designs found throughout Eastern Arrernte country. Other motifs reflect sand and body painting designs. Still others may reflect the stories and songs recounting the adventures of the ancestors who first travelled across the vast land making the earth as we know it today. In its contemporary form these designs on the canvas may not be attributed to any particular thing, holding the energy and vitality of the artist’s particular creative experience.
