Yukultji Napangati (born c.1970) and her family group gained attention in 1984 when they left the desert region near Wilkinkarra (Lake Mackay) and came in contact with white Australia for the first time.
She started painting for Papunya Tula Artists in 1996 and was included in the 2005 edition of Primavera at the Museum of Contemporary Art leading to wider attention. Yukultji has exhibited widely and was awarded the Wynne Prize, Art Gallery of New South Wales in 2018 and the Alice Art Prize, Alice Springs in 2012.
The fine line work and subtle use of colour in her paintings create shimmering surfaces which articulate her relationship to Country and her upbringing.
