Declan Apuatimi is an artist working from Munupi Arts & Crafts, Pirlangimpi (Garden Point), Melville Island. His Skin is Mosquito and his dance is the Trick Dance. 

Munupi Arts & Crafts Association is located along Melville Island's north-western coastline at Pirlangimpi (Garden Point) and is the most recently formed art centre on the Tiwi Islands. In 1990 the Yikikini Women’s Centre and Pirlangimpi Pottery were incorporated under the name Munupi Arts and Crafts Association giving local artists an opportunity to proudly celebrate Tiwi culture through both traditional and contemporary mediums.
For 25 years Munupi Arts has been a vital meeting place for the Tiwi people of the Pirlangimpi community for employment, cultural pride and well being.
Munupi Art is wholly indigenous owned and governed. 
Generated income supports the artist's families and therefore the whole Tiwi community.
