Warlimpirrnga Tjapaltjarri
Size: 120 x 180cm
Acrylic on Linen

In late 1984, Warlimpirrnga’s family walked out of the desert in Western Australia and made contact for the first time with European society. Described as 'The Lost Tribe', he and his family created international headlines. Until this time Warlimpirrnga and his family lived a traditional and nomadic life. Their intimate knowledge of the land, its flora and fauna and waterholes allowed them to survive, as their ancestors had for thousands of years.

It is this sacred landscape with its significant sites that Warlimpirrnga so strikingly portrays in his paintings.
