Artist Profile

1946 – 2019

Mitjili comes from a large family of painters. She was born at Haasts Bluff, 200kms west of Alice Springs, NT in 1946, and is the daughter of the late Tupa Tjakamarra and Tjunkiya Napaltjarri. Her husband is Long Tom Tjapanangka, a well-known international artist and her brother is acclaimed artist Turkey Tolsen Tjupurrula.

Both Mitjili and Turkey are custodians of the Kulata (spear) Tjukurrpa. Mitjili was taught her father’s Tjukurrpa (Dreaming) by her mother, who drew images of Uwalki in the sand (the trees that traditionally provide wood for spears). She commenced painting in 1992 at the Ikuntji Women’s Centre.

This country Mitjili painted was characterised by red sandhills, bushes and trees including the beautiful desert oaks. Mitjili was taught some of her key imagery by her mother drawing patterns in the sand. She says: “My mother taught me my father’s Tjukurrpa; that’s what I’m painting on the canvas”. Mitjili’s canvases are patterned with strong, vibrant colours, and contain an incredible energy. This style has gained her a strong following within Australia and internationally.

Mitjili passed away peacefully in early 2019.
