Kira Kiro Artists and Waringarri Arts

16 Speargrass Rd, Kununurra, 6743

Waringarri Aboriginal Arts is a living, growing art centre celebrating the uniqueness of Miriwoong cultural identity.

Established in the 1980s, in the heart of Miriwoong country at Kununurra in the Kimberley region of northern Australia, Waringarri artists share the importance of their Country and Culture. Waringarri is the first wholly indigenous owned art centre established in Western Australia and one of the oldest continuously operating art centres in Australia supporting economic independence for artists and their community. The centre operates artists’ studios and galleries and supports more than 100 artists as ochre painters, printmakers, wood carvers, boab engravers, sculptors and textile artists.   Cultural tours and performances compliment the visitor experience with a rich insight into Miriwoong culture. All proceeds from art sales, art commissions and cultural tourism is returned to the community to support our ongoing program of arts and cultural projects. There are more than 100 artists supported through the centre which also includes artists from the remote Kira Kiro Artists in Kalumburu on the northern Kimberley coast. Artists are supported by a team of local Aboriginal arts-workers.  

Kira Kiro Artists is the Kalumburu community’s recognised art centre, located on land of the Kwini people in north-western Western Australia.

Kira Kiro Artists is managed by both Waringarri Aboriginal Arts and Kalumburu arts workers, providing enterprise opportunities for artists to develop arts practice skills and cultural traditions while promoting ethical sales to collectors and national and international visual art spaces. The art centre places an emphasis on supporting traditional skills such as bark harvesting and painting, the collection of local olmal (white ochre), the production of cultural artefacts and storytelling through contemporary works. Art practice is grounded in the rock art tradition, in particular the Wandjina or “rain maker” and Kira Kiro or Gwion Gwion figures, the helpers of the Wandjina.  Contemporary practice including secular themes of land animals, sea-life and seasonal flora, focusing on bush foods and medicinal plant knowledge. Artists paint with natural ochre pigments on canvas, papers and bark and are skilled boab nut engravers.
