Kieren Karritpul: Old ways, new eyes

Kieren Karritpul is a quiet but dynamic Ngenwurmirri/Ngangikurrgurr artist from the Nauiyu Nambiyu community at Daly River, about 230 kilometres south of Darwin in the Northern Territory. Born in 1994 in Darwin he was named after his great-grandfather Karritpul by his mother Patricia Marrfurra. Kieren first remembered wanting to be an artist as a five-year-old after watching his mother, aunty and grandmother make art. Coming from a family of talented artists including brother and fellow printmaker Aaron McTaggart, it’s no wonder he became an artist too.
