Mawukura Jimmy Nerrimah died 18 February 2013.

One of the great painters at Mangkaja Arts Center in the Kimberley, Mawukura grew up in the Grat Sandy Desert at a time when traditional life was nomadic and days were spent hunting, socializing and undertaking important ceremonies to nurture the relationship with his land. He moved between the main Jilas (waterholes) in his country. The importance of these Jilas remained a dominant theme of Mawukura’s paintings throughout his career.
