ReDot Fine Art Gallery is extremely honoured to be hosting the first ever exhibition of works from acclaimed Tiwi Island community, Munupi Arts & Crafts in our inaugural show of 2017. It brings together 34 exceptional recent works, meticulously curated over the last 24 months, by some of the community’s most collectable and newly emerging talents.

Kiripapuranjuwi (Skilful Hands) is the daring first step into the Asian contemporary art scene and will be a refreshing look at the usage of natural ochres combined with synthetic acrylic paints to represent motifs and designs sacred to the Tiwi Islanders, who have traditionally painted their bodies for ceremonies using natural earth pigments for centuries. This tradition of mark making is the foundation for this modern Tiwi art as ceremonies continue to play a pivotal role in Tiwi culture.

The exhibition begins on Wednesday 8 February and runs until Saturday 4 March 2017 and will be attended in person by Maria Josette Orsto and Paulina (Jedda) Puruntatameri, in what will be their first ever trip to Singapore.
