Martumili Artists work with new and established artists, whose work showcases the diversity, integrity and strength of indigenous Martu culture. The aboriginal artwork typical of the Martu people consists of aboriginal paintings, woodcarvings, and artifacts. Martumili gives artists equitable access to national and international art markets, using accountable, best practice systems like the indigenous art code. This addresses significant issues of unethical and unscrupulous conduct in the Aboriginal art market. This also means that artworks sold by Martumili Artists are of the best quality: the cultural authority of the works is undiluted, the stories are recorded and the authenticity and provenance of the art is undisputed.
All purchases from the art centre guarantee the artists are paid fairly and the art centre commission is reinvested into the artist’s enterprise and their communities. Martu artists encourage all visitors to Martu country, to support the Martu people and their unique style of aboriginal paintings.
