Aaron Pei Pei

Aaron lives in Kaltukatjara, NT (Docker River) and has been painting since 2013. Aaron enjoys figurative style painting of the animals and landscape of the country surrounding Docker River.

Kamela

When Aaron paints he slowly makes his way across the canvas stroke-by-stroke, culminating in wacky, highly textured representations of animals and landscape. He is known for his upside down trees, floating rock holes, and disproportioned animals, which ask the audience to suspend reality in order to delve into his cheerful recollections of country.

Kaltukatjara, where Aaron lives, is full of kamela (camels) and wild brumbies. At night you can hear their hooves click clacking down the bitumen in search of water. Aaron explains this painting saying, “that thirsty camel was looking for that other camel. They went looking and they found him. They had a drink at that water.
