Sarrita King was born in Adelaide on the 5th of March 1988. Sarrita's father, William King Jungala, a well known artist was from the Gurindji tribe in the Northern Territory. The Gurindji tribe came to public attention during the 1960's and 1970 when members employed by the Wave Hill cattle station led a landmark case which became the first successful land rights claim in Australia.
Most of Sarrita's family still lives in Katherine, Northern Territory. William King passed away on December 2nd, 2007. He spent most of the last 20 years of his life in Adelaide.
Sarrita and her sister Tarisse King are well-known artists not only in Australia but also around the world through their exhibitions. They paint in a shared studio in Adelaide.
