Warrick Miller Japangardi

Warlpiri artist Warrick Japangardi Miller, was born in Katherine in 1987. His mother grew up between Chila Well and Lajamanu, and his father in Mt Theo, an outstation north-west of Yuendumu. Warrick started painting three years ago at Mt Theo and has since moved to Alekarenge (Ali Curung) where he paints with Arlpwe Art and Culture Centre. He primarily paints Jukurrpa designs that have been passed on to him from his great-grandfather and other Warlpiri lawmen. As Warrick states, “My grandfather grew up in Papunya. I’m so lucky that I learnt so much from him. I remember in the 1980s, he used to tell us stories.”
