Wilfred Nawirridj is an artist at Injlak Arts and Crafts, which is located at Gunbalanya (Oenpelli), a small Aboriginal township close to the East Alligator River in western Arnhem Land, approximately 300kms east of Darwin.
Nearby is the rugged Arnhem Land escarpment area of deep plunging gorges, huge boulders and wide overhanging rock platforms – ‘Stone Country’. The Art Centre is situated in the most beautiful of sites. The escarpment rises forebodingly to the east. Gunbalanya billabong at its rear is surrounded by open flood plains and overshadowed by Injalak Hill – a site extensively rich in rock art paintings and the source of much inspiration for the artists.
