Product Detail

Turn your outfit into a work of art with this silk-cotton scarf featuring the work of Anmatyerr artist Emily Kam Kngwarray. Kngwarray was one of the most significant contemporary painters to emerge in the late 20th century. Her formal practice began when she was in her 70s when she exploded onto the Australian contemporary art scene. It’s estimated that she produced over 3000 paintings in her short eight-year career. Through vibrant colour and richly layered linework,  Kngwarray’s paintings pay homage to her Country in Alhalkere. Visually and texturally gorgeous, this scarf is a perfect keepsake from the exhibition Ever Present: First Peoples Art of Australia.
