Presented by SALON Art Projects and Paul Johnstone Gallery in association with Martumili Artists
Born in the 1940s, Bugai Whyoulter is considered one of the most revered of the Martumili Artists. A master of colour, gesture and subtlety, her self-reflective works are layered with delicate brush strokes that represent cultural landmarks, water sources, and desert flora. A Kartujarra woman and a senior custodian of the lands surrounding Kunawarritji (Canning Stock Route, Well 33), Bugai paints both country and culture – a symbiotic union. Her works are held in numerous private and public collections and in 2021, Wantili won the Telstra National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Awards general painting category.
