Willy Tjungurrayi

(ok. 1930–2018)

He painted stories related to the Tingari Cycle.
The Tingari were Ancestral Beings who, as they traveled through the desert, created the landforms (as in our Bible), then performed ceremonies and created animals and humans, then gave laws and taught the Pintupi people about the laws and performed rituals. They were also responsible for the initiation ceremonies of young boys at specific locations. Due to the sacred and secret nature of the subject, the full meaning of this image cannot be revealed. *

His painting style, like most Pintupi artists, is linear, poetic, and the palette is limited to basic earth colors. He signed his paintings with a cross.

Willi's paintings are sought after by renowned galleries and art collectors.
