Ningura Napurrula [c1938-]
Ningura Napurrula is now arguably one of our most collectable living indigenous artists. In 2002, she had the distinction of her work being chosen by Australia Post to commemorate its $1.10 stamp. In 2006, she was selected as the leading female exponent of desert art in an exhibition held at the Musee du quai Branly, the famous Parisian museum dedicated to international indigenous art. Ningura’s unique status was further enhanced when the museum later decided to superimpose one of her works onto the ceiling of their administration building.
