Reinhold Inkamala

Rienhold Inkamala is an artist from Hermannsburg (Ntaria).

As a young man, Reinhold was a talented AFL player, but was involved in a serious accident that stopped him from playing sport.

His grandparents, the Pareroultjas, taught him to draw with pencils when he was a child, before he learned to paint in the tradition of the Hermannsburg School of Art, pioneered by Albert Namatjira.

Artist Ivy Pareroultja is like a mother to Reinhold.

He paints his father’s country with great use of colours and is known for his depiction of central Australian wildlife and black cockatoos.

Reinhold is married to Cathy (Jennifer) Wirri, sister of acclaimed young talent watercolourist Elton Wirri.

In 2016, Reinhold’s circle watercolour painting was added to the collection of the National Museum of Australia.
