Artist Bio


Dolsi Kelly Napangardi is an exceptional Indigenous Australian artist from the remote Mount Liebig community, also known as Watiyawanu in the Northern Territory (325km west of Alice Springs).

Dolsi is the daughter of the world-renowned artist Lily Kelly Napangardi who mentored Dolsi on how to paint and passed on her secret women’s business and Dreaming stories.

Dolsi and Lily still maintain the nomadic lifestyle and travel vast distances around Central Australia to visit family and sacred sites on their land.

The theme of Dolsi’s paintings is “Sacred Rock Holes” executed in a very contemporary abstract style. Dolsi paints mostly in all black and white or duel tones in the dotting style, similar to her mother.
