The painting is titled Janganpa Jukurrpa (Brush-tail Possum Dreaming)- Mawurrji by Glen Jampijinpa Martin at Warlukurlangu Artists.
Glen Jampijinpa Martin was born in Alice Springs Hospital in 1991, the closest hospital to Nyirripi, a remote aboriginal community located approximately 430 km from Alice Springs in the Northern Territory of Australia. He is the grandson of Shorty Jangala Robertson (Dec), a major Warlpiri artist.
He began painting with Warlukurlangu Artists Aboriginal Corporation in 2016. He paints his mother’s Janganpa Jukurrpa (Bush-tail possum Dreaming), dreamings which relate directly to his land, its features and the plants and animals that inhabit it. These stories have been passed down to him by his mother and her mother before her for millennia. Glen enjoys working with colour using an unrestricted palette to depict his traditional iconography and his semi-abstract forms of birds that live around Nyirripi.
Established in 1985 Warlukurlangu is a not-for-profit organisation that is 100% Aboriginal-owned by its artists from the remote desert communities of Yuendumu and Nyirripi in Central Australia. Warlukurlangu Artists is famous for its gloriously colourful acrylic paintings and limited edition prints. The art centre has a national and international profile and its art has been featured in hundreds of exhibitions and publications in Australia and around the world.
