I first encountered Mick Wikilyiri at Amata in the APY lands of South Australia in 1999. I had been assisting the women to set up their art centre (then named Minymaku Arts) and before long the senior men were keen to join in. Mick was part of the first men’s painting workshop in 2003, and at first, I was won over by his gentle yet charismatic personality, but I was also astounded by his remarkable talent as an artist.

In 2005 Mick was part our first group men’s exhibition at Alcaston gallery, Amatala watiku tjukurpa wiru - Good stories from Amata men. He had his first solo exhibition at the gallery in 2014 and then in 2018 and 2019.

I am continually drawn to his unique portrayal of country in the APY Lands - his landscapes are thoughtfully depicted through striking imagery, stylistic experimentation and intense colour. Mick’s paintings are a highly personal representation of country, spirituality and a rich family history – a true celebration of his Anangu culture.

Appreciated by a wide audience, ranging from emerging to established collectors, Mick’s work can be found in major collections across Australia and overseas. His paintings particularly appeal to an international art market, as the colourful compositions give an insight into his deeply sacred Indigenous culture.
