Julie Nangala Robinson was born in Yuendumu in 1973, Julie Nangala is one of five daughters of well-known Telstra Award winning artist, Dorothy Napangardi. Since the late 1990's while often in the company of her talented mother, Julie has pursued and developed a creative visual language all of her own, one which consists of a fascinating blend of stylised experimentation and ancient narrative.
Julie paints graphically minimal and contemporary designs of her country Pirlinyanu, a land of rocky outcrops and deep water springs. She has moved beyond traditional iconography and created her own visual language, making her an exciting and innovative artist to watch.
She paints Pirlinyanu, a water Dreaming site (Ngapa Jukurrpa) near Mina Mina, for which she is traditional custodian. In recent years, she has started to paint on a regular basis and has exhibited in numerous group shows.
