Kudditji Kngwarreye (pronounced goo-beh-chee) has taken his place as one of Australia's foremost indigenous artists.
Whilst they were not blood related, Kudditji was recognised as a skin brother of the late Emily Kame Kngwarreye . While Kudditji began painting around 1986, his highly intuitive and gestural method of painting was not welcomed by Galleries, and he was encouraged to paint in the fashionable style of the time, executing works with detailed infill.
After seeing Emily catapult on to the Australian and International Art scene, Kudditji resumed his exploration in to the abstract which he continued until he 'put down the brush' in 2015.
Kudditji participated in many international exhibitions and became known for his depictions of his Dreamings; their abstract imagery, bold colour use and intuitive interplay with space and form has cemented his name in the Aboriginal art scene.
