George Tjungarrayi_l
George Tjungarrayi was born in the Gibson desert near Kiwikurra across the Western Australia border about 1947. He began painting in West Camp in Papunya about 1976 for Papunya Tula Artists and continued painting while residing at Yai Yai, Warawa, Mt Liebig and now Kintore. His ancestral country covers the sites around Wala Wala, Kiwirrkura, Lake Mackay, Kulkuta, Karku, Ngaluwinyamana and Kilpinya to the north-west of Kintore across the West Australian border. George paints the Tingari stories for this region.
George’s work is represented in most public galleries and many significant corporate collections. In 2003 , 2015 and 2016 he was selected to exhibit in the Wynne Prize as a finalist at the Art Gallery of NSW, Sydney.
