When Hubert was a young boy he watched the original Hermannsburg School watercolour artists including Albert Namatjira, along with his father Reuben Pareroultja, and uncles Otto and Edwin Pareroultja as they painted.
Following n his father and uncle’s footsteps, Hubert began painting as a young boy, and depicts many of the same locations in the Western MacDonnell Ranges, including Hermannsburg, Mt Sonder and James Range, and their association creation stories.
As a brilliantly innovative artist Hubert continues the extraordinary tradition of the Hermannsburg watercolourists with a futuristic twist: his own idiosyncratic orbital landscapes and split images, showing two places at once, in addition to more classic very finely painted dramatic paintings of the Western MacDonnell Ranges.
In 2020 Hubert was awarded the Wynne Prize for landscape painting at the Art Gallery of NSW and in 2021 was announced the winner of the Wandjuk Marika 3D Award at the Telstra National Aboriginal & Torres Strait Isnalder Art Awards in Darwin. His paintings are in the collections of the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra, Art Gallery of South Australia, Adelaide, and Queensland Art Gallery/Gallery of Modern Art, Brisbane amongst others.
Today Hubert Pareroultja lives on his traditional lands at Kulpitharra / Lundara outstation west of Hermannsburg (Ntaria).
