Kudditji Kngwarreye

Born around 1928 Kudditji Kngwarreye, the younger brother of the late Emily Kame Kngwarreye, had a traditional bush upbringing in the Utopia region. He began painting in the early 1980’s. Prior to an artistic career he had numerous jobs throughout the Central Desert as a stockman, and also worked in mineral and gold mines.

His distinctive symmetrical dotted paintings have been collected since then by museums and collections around the world. His works depicted various interpretations of “Emu Dreaming” and “Men’s Business”.

In the early 1990’s Kudditji Kngwarreye's experimentation with his art led him to move briefly away from ‘dot art’ altogether. With a heavy loaded brush he painted his country with broad strokes and a combination of bold colours and soft fusions, accentuating the natural colours of land and sky over various seasons. This style was appreciated by an astute few but was not that well received by the major galleries. As his major source of income he returned to the more popular pointillist style.

It was not until 2002 that Kudditji revisited this style. His works have been shown throughout Australia and the USA since that time to much acclaim.

In 2006 Kudditji Kngwarreye was nominated for Art Collector Magazine 50 Most Collectable Artists. Sadly Kudditji passed away in 2017.
