ANATJARI TJAMPITJINPA

Date of Birth : c.1927
Country : Wudungunya, NT

ANATJARI WAS ONE OF THE FIRST ABORIGINAL ARTISTS INVOLVED IN THE ACRYLIC MOVEMENT. HE WAS ONE OF PAPUNYA TULA‘S MOST CONSISTENT AND ENTHUSIASTIC PAINTERS FOR OVER 25 YEARS (C. 1976-1999).

Anatjari Taught many of the Balgo Aboriginal artists to paint in acrylics on canvas. His younger brother, Dini Campbell, was taught by him. Dini later moved to Kintore in the western desert region where he painted for the Papunya Tula artists.

Both his daughters, Mantua Nangala, Yinapura Nangala are now well-known and established Aboriginal artists.

Anatjari‘s work was shown in Face of the Centre, National Gallery of Victoria 1985, the Asia Society‘s Dreamings: Art of Aboriginal Australia exhibition and many other group exhibitions of Papunya Tula Artists.
