Among the artists are finalists and winners of major art awards, including the Paddington Art Prize, NATSIA Awards, Cossack Art Awards, and Hedland Art Awards. The collective’s work appears in local, national and international exhibitions.

Diversity of style reflecting diversity of story

Most of the Spinifex Hill artists paint in acrylics. The different styles, subjects and colour palettes of their artworks reflect the variety of Indigenous experience.

Painting in a safe, holistic and dynamic environment

The Studios are an important cultural and community place for Hedland and the wider Pilbara.  Many artists have been able to build esteem and pride through their art making, gain confidence to share stories in a culturally safe way, travel for exhibitions and art fairs, and create new income streams.
