Martumili Artists was established by Martu people living in the communities of Parnpajinya (Newman), Jigalong, Parnngurr, Punmu, Kunawarritji, Irrungadji and Warralong, and it draws on strong influences of aboriginal art history. The artists and their families are the traditional custodians of vast stretches of the Great Sandy, Little Sandy and Gibson Deserts as well as the Karlamilyi (Rudall River) area.  Most Martu people maintain an entirely independent, nomadic desert lifestyle until the 1950s and 1960s when they walked into settlements in response to a long and severe drought.  Today, Martu people live in their own communities and regularly visit regional centres such as Newman and Port Hedland.

Whilst Alperstein Designs is not an Aboriginal owned business, we have long established relationships spanning over 15 years with many Aboriginal Artists and Art Centres. We work primarily with practicing artists whose primary focus is in art making with exhibitions within Australia and around the world. Products are made in consultation with the artists and art centres and aim to complement their existing practice.
