Biography from the Archives of askART

Peter Nabarlambarl

Peter was a distinguished Kunwinjku artist from Oenpelli in west Arnhem Land. He was born in 1930 and passed away in 2001. He painted using the traditional rarrk cross-hatching technique, or x-ray style, typical of the Gunbalanya artists of western Arnhem land.

His work often depicted the spirits that have metamorphosed into rocks at important sites in the artist's country. He was renowned as an artist on bark, and his work also carried over successfully into the print medium without losing any of its traditional qualities.

Since 1982 he exhibited all over Australia, including in the 1994 'Power of the Land: Masterpieces of Aboriginal Art' exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria; as well as in several exhibitions in the United States.
