Silk scarf | Papa Tjukurpa By Jimmy Donegan | One of Twelve
This stunning 100% Silk Scarf features the artwork Papa Tjukurpa By Jimmy Donegan. A perfect gift of wearable art to adorn your neck, upstyle your hair, or hang on the wall in that special space.
Born and raised in remote Western Australia, Donegan laboured as a stockman, craftsman, and senior lawman, and in the 1970s helped organise the outstations movement. Since beginning to paint in 2000, the artist has become renown nationally and abroad for his rich and vivid compositions of his cultural inheritance. He now paints for Ninuku Arts in the APY Lands of South Australia.
Papa Tjukurpa represents a pivotal work for Donegan. In this work, the artist boldly deviates from his signature style of fastidiously detailed dot-work, in a breakthrough piece that is startlingly contemporary.
