Papunya Tula Artists is an Aboriginal cooperative owned by the artists who are Pintupi and Luritja speaking people from the western deserts of central Australia. The establishment of the company in 1972 was the starting point for the emergence of the Western Desert art movement.
Papunya Tula Artists are recognized for the continuing excellence and cultural strength of their art. Their painting style derives directly from knowledge of traditional body and sand painting associated with ceremonies.
Since the company was established at Papunya, many Pintupi and Luritja people have moved back to their homelands and the centre of activities is now at Kintore (Walungurru), a further 300 km west in the Gibson Desert.
All of the paintings below are from Papunya Tula Artists and come with the certificate of authenticity issued by the community art centre.
