Ningura was part of the original group of the higher-ranking women from “Kintore” and “Kiwirrkura” who began painting for the famous Papunya Tula Artists which founded the Aboriginal Art Movement in 1971. The Papunya Tula Aboriginal Art Movement began in 1971 when Geoffrey Bardon a white school teacher encouraged few higher-ranking Aboriginal people, who held vitally important tribal positions and were instrumental in the instruction of young Aboriginals, to paint their Dreamings. Without European philosophy of perspective, using the aboriginal colors and traditional iconography, the artists depict the “Dreamings” and their relationship with the land. This was an experiment which had staggering results and the Aboriginal Art Movement has began.

She is the widow of Yala Yala Gibbs Tjungurrayi, a highly respected Pintupi elder who held significant knowledge of his countries Dreaming stories. In 1996 she was part of a group of elderly women from Kintore and Kiwirrkura who began painting for Papunya Tula Artists in their own right.

Paris museum one of the Europe’s most important public museum, Musée du quai Branly in Paris features significantly Ningura Napurrula work, and Indigenous art both in the temporary exhibits inside the museum and in the actual building itself. Coinciding with the opening, two auctions of Indigenous art - one in Paris, the other in London, featuring 20 works from central Australia. The events significantly lift the profile of Aboriginal art in Europe and the sales help combating the kidney disease among Aboriginal people.

'In conjunction with Sotheby's, Ningura Napururrula herself, and Papunya Tula artists, donated a work for the Sotheby's auction in Paris - the Oceanic auction on there on the 23 June,' she said. 'The proceeds - yes, 50 per cent of that will got towards staffing the facility and also looking towards getting a second dialysis unit in there.' An exhibition of 20 pieces by Western Desert artists at Hamilton's Gallery in London is also expected to raise more money.
