Art Community Waringarri
Waringarri Aboriginal Arts is a wholly aboriginal owned art centre specializing in contemporary collectable indigenous art of the east Kimberley region.
The art centre was established in the early 1980's by senior artists of the region and is located in the heart of Miriwoong Country at Kununurra in the east Kimberley.
Waringarri ochre paintings present a powerful contemporary aesthetic interpreting the grandeur of the Kimberley region and the importance of each individual artistís country and traditional knowledge.
Artists relate images of country, traditional stories and stories of station life and contemporary events. Painting only with ochre pigments Waringarri artists comment on the importance of maintaining traditional links to land and culture while exploring a celebration of colour, composition and individualism.
Waringarri Aboriginal Arts supports almost 50 artists, proudly employs indigenous staff and supports ethical trade practice. The Centre is wholly owned and managed by the Waringarri artist group, with 100% of income from sales returned back to the community.
