Eubena Nampitjin

Eubena Nampitjin (1930–2013) was a seminal figure in Australian Indigenous art, renowned for her contributions to the contemporary Aboriginal artistic landscape. Born in the heart of the Great Sandy Desert near Well 33 on the Canning Stock Route, Nampitjin's early life was deeply rooted in the cultural traditions of the Wangkajunga people.

Relocating to the Catholic mission near Lake Gregory in 1948 and later to Wirrimanu (Balgo Hills) in 1962, Nampitjin emerged as a central figure within the burgeoning artistic community. Her artistic journey commenced in the mid-1980s under the mentorship of Michael Rae, the esteemed art coordinator at Warlayirti Artists.
