Yirawala

 (c.1903-1976)
Yirawala was active/lived in Australia.  Yirawala is known for aboriginal painting.

Biography   Yirawala


Yirawala was a master of creating dazzling patterns of rarrk that embodied the presence of ancestral forces within a painting, as in the animated depiction of Lumahlumah in full ceremonial regalia.  Through his authority to introduce innovations in bark painting, such as his variations on rarrk patterns to enhance the brilliance of a painting, Yirawala was a major influence on successive generations of bark painters from western Arnhem Land.  The white ground of the bark is also a device Yirawala introduced to further enhance the lustrous quality of the painted surface. 

A number of related and similar depictions of Lumahlumah by Yirawala in the collection of the National Gallery are illustrated in Holmes, S. Le Brun   ...  Displaying 750 of 1075 characters.
