In the Central And Western Desert regions since the 1970’s, numerous art centers have emerged, reflecting an incredible diversity of style. From the elegant and minimalist canvases of Papunya Tula and Kintore to the exuberant dotted paintings of Warlukurlangu Artists of Yuendumu, to painterly works from Tjala Arts at Amata ,  the mandala-like jewel colored designs from Keringke Arts, the classic paintings from Kayili Artists at Patjarr and naive paintings of “bush tucker” from all over.
New art centers are still emerging and flourishing, contributing to the phemomenal growth of this still new art movement.

The Central and Western Desert region covers about one third  of the Australian continent (nearly 600,000 square miles)and is home to Arrente, Luritja, Pintupi, Pitjantjatjara, Warlpiri  and other groups.
It was in this region that the Contemporary Indigenous Art movement started, at the township of Papunya in the early  1970's.
Here is a wide selection of work from the Central and Western Desert art centers:
