Namatjira

This animation was created by students at Ntaria School, mentored by Leonardo Ortega and Periphery Media. It has grown from a workshop process facilitated by Big hART's Namatjira Project, with senior Hermannsburg school watercolour artists teaching promising young artists their iconic tradition. These young artists are now taking that tradition into the digital age.

The Namatjira project (namatjira.bighart.org) is a multilayered, long-term arts project. It includes a creative community development with Western Aranda people in Central Australia, an award winning theatrical work, accompanying watercolour exhibitions and a documentary in the making. It is also a celebration of the acclaimed watercolour artist Albert Namatjira’s life and legacy.

8 August 2009 marked fifty years since internationally acclaimed watercolour artist and Western Aranda man, Albert Namatjira, passed away. The Namatjira project was launched at that time and is a celebration of his life and legacy.

These short films give you a lucky insight into the project, the show and the grandchildren of Albert Namatjira.
