Collection: Canteen Creek Artists

Nestled deep in Alyawarr Country down 168km of unsealed road is the small community of Owairtilla. Home to approximately 200 people predominantly of the Alyawarr language group the community is contained to housing, an outback store, a health centre and a school. Owairtilla, also known as Canteen Creek, is notable for its lively population of wild donkeys and the rich variety of surrounding bush tuckers.

The Canteen Creek artists use a palette characterised by joyful bursts of colour and are often seen to employ repetitive, technical patterns alongside bold, figurative renditions of bush tucker, flowers and medicine. Their work is notable for its deft combination of abstract and figurative imagery used to share cultural knowledge relating to the uses of familiar bush medicines and tuckers.
