About the artist
Hubert has been painting water colours since he was a young boy. In those early years he learnt by watching Albert Namatjira, his father Reuben Pareroultja and his uncles Otto and Edwin. Hubert prefers to live on his traditional country west of Hermannsburg.
Here he spends his time mustering horses and camels and painting the desert landscapes he knows so well. As is the case with many of the traditional aboriginal people, the images of the country around him are indelibly printed on his memory. At times he will sit and paint a scene with great accuracy without leaving his veranda.
