Tjala Arts is an Anangu-owned arts organisation that lies at the heart of Amata community, in far north-west South Australia on the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands. It supports established, mid-career and emerging artists who work in a variety of mediums, including acrylic paint on linen, punu (woodwork) and tjanpi (fibre weaving). The painters are known for their vibrant use of colour and energetic mark making. Works by Tjala artists have been acquired by many high-profile collectors across Australia and abroad and are held in numerous public institutions.
Established in 1999, Tjala Arts is a professional art-making studio where culture is celebrated and maintained by Anangu across three generations. It is a place that honours cultural practice and promotes and supports the highest level of ethical practice in the production and sale of Indigenous art.
