This International Women's Day we continue celebrating the talent of DJIRRIRRA YUKUWA WUNUŊMURRA whose artworks are on display in our Sydney & Berlin galleries.
Djirrirra (also known as Yukuwa) assisted her father, Yanggarriny Wunungmurra (1932-2003), in his artistic practice for several years up until his death. Her father granted her the authority to paint his clan design whilst he was alive and her precise hand and geometric style has increasingly attracted enthusiastic interest from the art world.
She has lived at the remote homeland of Gangan since she was born in the 1960's and has three children.
