Injalak

Injalak is an important and innovative art centre at Gunbalanya in West Arnhem Land. Although it had a noted bark-painting tradition dating back to the early 1950s, the art movement was re-invigorated in 1980s, with the establishment of a screen-printing project at the community. The notion of transferring traditional designs and motifs to new materials was readily taken up, and - beyond print-making - the Injalak artists began also to paint with their natural ochres on high-quality art-paper. These innovative adaptions continue - along with bark painting - in the work of the community.
