Curatorial insightThe artist was one of the original Papunya Tula artists who began the new painting movement in the early 1970s with the encouragement and support of Geoff Bardon. Tjungurrayi moved away from Papunya in the 1980s and lived at a small outstation on the traditional land for which he was the senior custodian.
