Designer: Kieren Karritpul

Kieren Karritpul is an award winning Ngen’giwumirri artist who lives in the small community of Nauiyu (Daly River) south west of Darwin, surrounded by artists including his mother and aunties. Since the age of fifteen, Karritpul has dedicated himself to art, and works in mediums based around drawing; including painting, print making, fabric design, and ceramics.

He uses the weaving process as a visual metaphor for land and landscape. As a Ngen’gi wumirri man, Karritpul is not permitted to weave, so instead he paints magnified views of woven objects and fibres. This painting is a magnified view of the woven surface that stands for the breathing lands of his Country. Karritpul feels he was born woven into the land and using repetition and line he creates a surface that moves like human breath.

The fabric was sourced from Merrepen Arts – you can buy fabric direct from the art centre. Visit their website here:
