Mangkaja Arts is a thriving Kimberley Art Centre in the township of Fitzroy Crossing, just four hours east of Broome.
The artists often paint iconic singular images of country that tell essential stories of heritage and identity. Their paintings are characterised by a colourful, contemporary style featuring an uninhibited immediacy and large brush strokes. The meeting of desert and river cultures has created a unique range of strengths and artistic expression.
Many of the artists at Mangkaja have well-established careers and are represented both nationally and internationally. Mangkaja Arts also has a long tradition of large scale collaborative projects and has produced major works such as the epic Ngurrara Canvas, a collaborative piece which maps the lands that form part of the Great Sandy Desert.
