Spinifex Arts Project Aboriginal Corporation

The Spinifex Arts Project was established in 1997 as part of the Spinifex Native Title documentation process. Now, nearly 20 years later, the Spinifex Arts Project has established a solid footing as one of the Western Desert’s most stable and productive arts initiatives.

Considerable emphasis has gone into documenting works and recording the cultural knowledge and heritage held by the senior artists from the region.

The Spinifex artists paint traditional stories and document kinship responsibilities with acrylic paint on linen,
often using a vibrant, unrestricted palette. Spinifex works have become widely known in the fine art world and the now growing body of work is internationally acclaimed and housed within major art and museum collections both in Australia and overseas.

The Spinifex Arts Project continues to produce high-quality fine art for the national and international markets, support cultural maintenance and heritage preservation initiatives within the Spinifex lands, and develop promotional and educational material for the Spinifex Foundation.

Spinifex Arts Project Aboriginal Corporation is located at Tjuntjuntjara WA.
