Kayili Artists


Kayili Artists is the arts enterprise for the tiny community of Patjarr on the Ngaanyatjarra lands of Western Australia. Patjarr is located on the edge of the Gibson Desert Nature Reserve, 240 kilometres north of Warburton. In September 2004 Kayili began operations as an art centre owned and governed by Aboriginal people. The paintings of its artists are known for their vibrant colours, raw painterly quality and vitality. Kayili regularly supports artists and their families on ‘return to Country’ trips, enabling them to maintain the ancestral connections that infuse their work.
