Hubert Pareroultja is a senior Western Arrernte-Luritja man who lives at the Kulpitharra / Lundara outstation on his homeland west of Hermannsburg (Ntaria) in central Australia.
Hubert has been painting watercolours since he was a young boy, following in the footsteps of his father Reuben Pareroultja and Uncles Otto and Edwin Pareroultja. Reuben, Otto and Edwin were part of the original Hermannsburg School of watercolourists and were all acclaimed artists.
As a child, Hubert watched the original Hermannsburg School artist Albert Namatjira and his father and uncles as they painted. Hubert paints many of the same locations that Namatjira and the Pareroultja brothers painted, in particular Hermannsburg, Mt Sonder and James Range. Hubert lives and works in the Western MacDonnell Ranges to this day.
