Ikuntji Artists

Galleries, Museums and Collections

Ikuntji Artists was the first art centre established by women in the Western Desert Art Movement. In the 1980s women began painting in the Haasts Bluff aged care facility. Instructed by their husbands and fathers, and often assisting them in completing their paintings.

Ikuntji Artists was first established in 1992 as a woman’s centre, initially focused on providing services for old people and children in community. After first experiences in printing T-shirts, artists began producing acrylic paintings on linen and handmade paper, gaining the attention of the Australian and international art world as well as earning the centre an impressive reputation for fine art. In 2005 the art centre was incorporated as Ikuntji Artists Aboriginal Corporation.

Today Ikuntji Artists are represented in many national and international galleries and institutions. Their art is famous for bold colour choice, decisive brush strokes and a long legacy of internationally renowned artists. In recent years Ikuntji has released fabric ranges and developed a strong presence and identity in the textiles and fashion industries.

Ikuntji Artists welcomes visitors to the studio and gallery for a unique experience to browse and purchase authentic Aboriginal art (acrylic painting, seed jewellery, prints, clothing, screen printed textiles, ethical merchandise) directly from an Aboriginal-run and owned business.
