Australian Aboriginal Artists Kudditji Kngwarreye

 

Kudditji Kngwarreye is the younger brother of the late Emily Kame Kngwarreye, and an Anmatyerre elder and custodian of many important Dreamings and a custodian for ceremonial sites located in his country at Utopia Station, and many of his paintings refer to sites at Boundary Bore, where men’s initiation ceremonies are performed. Born in 1928, Kudditji was brought up in the Utopia region before starting to work as a stockman and mine worker. His paintings “My Country” are now his trademark.
