Yalpirakinu is Adrian Jangala Robertson’s mother’s country. Adrian’s mother is the late Eunice Napangardi, a well known painter herself. His paintings consistently refer to the desert mountains, ridges and trees which are part of Yalpirakinu. Adrian’s brushwork is loaded with energy, drama and memories. In this painting Adrian has drawn from his memory to portray his family in Yalpirakinu.

Desert Mob is presented annually in Mparntwe | Alice Springs on Arrernte Country.
