Coordinator Art Production - Parnpajinya (Newman) - Job in Newman - Martumili  Artists Martumili Artists was established in late 2006 and supports Martu artists in Kunawarritji, Punmu, Pamngurr, Jigalong, Warralong, Irrungadji (Nullagine) and Pampajinya (Newman).  Many Martu artists have close relationships with established artists amongst Yulparija, Kukatja and other Western Desert peoples and are now gaining recognition in their own right for their diverse, energetic, and unmediated painting styles. 
Their works reflect the dramatic geography and scale of their homelandds in the Great Sandy Desert and Rdall River regions of Western Australia.  Martumili Artists represent speakers of Manyjilyjarra, Warnman, Kartujarra, Putijarra, and Martu Wangka languages, many of whom experienced first contact with Europeans in the 1960s.  The artists include painters, working in acrylic and oils, as well as weavers coiling baskets and sculptors working in wood, grass, and wool.
Martu artists proudly maintain their creative practices whilst pursuing social and cultural obligations across the Martu homelands.
