Esther Bruno Nangala is a Luritja/Pintupi woman and the granddaughter of Naata Nungurrayi, a legend of the desert art movement. Esther was born in Alice Springs in 1981 and brought up in Christmas Creek, near Fitzroy Crossing, and later in Kintore.
Bold in her use of colour and tending towards intricate designs, Esther, along with Gracie Ward Napaltjarri, represents and exciting view into the future of desert art. She paints bold traditional designs associated with women’s sites, ceremonies and the laws of her Country. Esther’s works are vibrant and brightly coloured and often quite textured due to the large quantities of paint she applies to the linen. The influence of her grandmother’s work is evident in Esther’s paintings, who is known for her representations of Women’s Law and Tingari Cycle.
