Barney Campbell Tjakamara

Artist Barney Campbell Tjakamarra was born in the area of Karrkurritinytja (Lake Macdonald) and he passed away in 2006. Barney Campbell Tjakamarra is a senior Pintupi lawman who painted the Tingari Cycle stories from around Lake MacDonald area.
Up until his middle age he led a largely traditional lifestyle and his stories were created in the sand for ceremonies or in body paint. When the acrylic paints became available at Papunya he was quick to adopt the new medium and was well recognised for his complex use of design and colour. In his paintings, the Dreaming stories are usually depicted in a dramatic juxtaposition of black, red, blue and white colours with very fine dot work.
