Hailing from Utopia in Central Australia Pula continues a legacy that dates back through millennia. Painting traditional stories handed down from her father she depicts her homelands, bush foods and ceremonial designs using intricate dot work.

Margaret Loy Pula paints her culture and her father's dreaming. Her story "Anatye" or Bush Potato dreaming depicts a plant that is an important native food source for the Anmatyerre people.

In 2012 Pula was the first Indigenous artist to win the prestigious Waterhouse Natural History Art Prize in South Australia.

In 2011 she was the first female artist to win the Sunshine Coast Art Prize and in the same year the first female artist to win the Paddington Art Prize (Sydney).

Pula has been a finalist in numerous art prizes including the Wynne Prize (2012), Sulman Prize (2013), Blake Prize (2013), Gold Coast Art Prize (2011), Fleurieu Art Prize (2013) and is a current finalist in the 2016 Tattersall's Club Landscape Art Prize.

Pula has also won the Muswellbrook Art Prize (2013), Redland Art Prize (2014) and the Grace Cossington Smith Art Prize (2014).

In the last 18 months Pula has held major exhibitions in New York and exhibited at some of the world's top art fairs including Singapore, Miami, New York and Mexico City.

The exhibition 'Anatye' opens 29th June and is showing until July 23rd.

Mitchell Fine Art is located at 86 Arthur St, Fortitude Valley, Brisbane. The gallery is open 6 days a week, Monday to Friday 10am to 5.30pm and Saturday 10am to 5pm.
