Johnson Tiles and art dealer Alexandra O’ Brien collaborated to print reproductions of aboriginal art onto ceramic tiles. Commissioned by O’ Brien and made possible by Johnson Tiles’ Artiles service, the range is titled “My Country.”

Featuring art by Aboriginal artists Geraldine Nangala Gallagher and Sarah Napurrula White, both from Yuendumu in Australia’s Northern Territory, “My Country” marks the first time that the style has been reproduced onto ceramic tile. Each image and color holds special meaning and spiritual importance to the Aboriginal people and culture.

Johnson Tiles used traditional lithography techniques combined with high-res scanning process to accurately match every detail and color of the artists’ paintings.
