Yirrkala Print Space is one of the Australia’s premier print studios specialising in limited edition works on paper produced on their own press. The studio continues to expand its collaborations with master printmakers from across Australia and around the world to facilitate new works and continue the development of techniques and experimentation across the generations of Yolngu printmakers. Printmaking techniques including Japanese woodblock, etching, linocut, screenprints and collagraphs have been learnt, absorbed and applied, combining traditional designs and knowledge to create new artworks.
While these Yolngu artists are respectful of the discipline of miny’tji (sacred design), the nature of the printmaking process has provided artistic freedom of expression; enabling them to experiment with colour, imagery, concepts and design without compromising their spiritual identity. The art of Yirrkala Print Space is being collected and exhibited by galleries around Australia.
