George Yapa Tjangala


Papunya region: Born at Witingu, between Jupiter Well and present day Kiwirrkura. After his father’s death George was adopted by Anatjari Tjampitjinpa and spent his early years in the bush, living the traditional nomadic lifestyle. The family were sighted by government patrols in 1963 and a year later were transported to the new settlement of Papunya. His paintings also depict an Eagle Hawk Dreaming, and Tingari stories from this area and Wala Wala, a large waterhole outside Kiwirrkura.
