Kalumburu Community is the northern most community in Western Australia. The region is rich in rock art, particularly of the Wandjina and Gwion or Kira Kiro figures. Arts practice is grounded in the rock art tradition with contemporary practice also including secular themes of sea-life and seasonal flora. While arts practice has always been a strong cultural activity for the Kalumburu community it was only in 2009 that the Kira Kiro- Kalumburu Artists was established with ongoing assistance from Waringarri Aboriginal Arts in Kununurra. Artists paint with ochre pigments onto canvas, papers and bark.
