Johnny Yungut Tjupurrula

Johnny Yungut Tjapurrula was born near Tjungimata in the Northern Territory approximately 1930.
He commenced painting for Papunya Tula Artists in 1997. ¬†Yungut was the last surviving man of his generation for his local group area. As befits his age and ritual standing, he had a large repertoire of Dreaming subjects, including a number of sites in his father’s country around Kiwirrkurra: to the west, the sandhill site of
Ngalpurrunya and the Pulyulnga soakage waters just out of Kiwirrkurra; Tjuntulpul rockhole and Tilunga rockhole and rocky outcrop just east of Kiwirrkurra; to the south, the rockhole and soakage site of Ngaminya; and, to the north, the claypan and soakage water of Tjutalpi.
