Australian Aboriginal Art by Walala Tjapaltjarri
61cm x 46cm
Walala was one of the original ‘Pintupi Nine’. The Pintupi Nine is a group of nine Pintupi people who lived a traditional hunter-gatherer desert-dwelling life in Australia’s Gibson Desert until 1984, when they made contact with their relatives near Kiwirrkurra. His artwork depicts the Tingari Cycle of the Pintupi from the Western Desert. These works are created by painting a network of four sided shapes as sometimes parallel lines and concentric circles.
