Artwork Story

This design by Kieren Karritypul was inspired by the woven fish traps.

Merrepen artists are renowned for their colourful depictions of local flora and fauna in prints, paintings, fabrics and objects. Merrepen Arts is located at Nauiyu Nambiyu (Daly River) Community, about 220 km south west of Darwin.

With the help of textile artist Bobbie Ruben the artists produce beautiful screen printed fabric designs that reflect the rich and abundant natural environment of the local rivers and wet lands.
