Tiger Yaltangki: Malpa Wiru (Good Friends)

‘Malpa Wiru’ is an exhibition of paintings and limited edition prints by artist Tiger Yaltangki, of the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands.

Drawing inspiration from his favourite science fiction films and television shows, such as ‘The Mighty Boosh’ and ‘Dr Who’, as well as rock and roll bands like AC/DC, the artist presents a cast of quirky and playful characters on vibrant abstract landscapes, which also feature Pitjantjatjara Mamu, cheeky supernatural spirits that derive from an inherited knowledge of Yaltangki’s traditional culture.
