Kudditji Kngwarreye is one of a kind, often referred to as ‘Mark Rothko’ a masterful painter. Kudditji baffles us with his age but he must be approaching or already in his 90’s. Quite remarkable until just recently this man still painting masterpieces at this age. Unfortunately his health is not well and we don’t expect to ever see him paint again. We at Mandel Art Gallery have been collecting this amazing persons painting for 10 years and have build up a considerable collection. This collection varies greatly both in styles and times of his life. Those who know Kudditji well know that in various points of his life his paintings reflected how he felt.
