Walter Jangala Brown
Walter Jangala Brown was born in 1977 in Yuendumu, a remote Aboriginal community 290km north-west of Alice Springs in the Northern Territory of Australia. He attended Yirara College, an Aboriginal boarding college in Alice Springs. He currently lives in Nyirripi with his wife and three children. He comes from a long line of artists and in 2007 began painting for Warlukurlangu Artists and paints his fathers Ngapa Jukurrpa (Water Dreaming), Warna Jukurrpa (Snake Dreaming) and his grandfathers Tingari Cycle.
This painting depicts a portion of the Tingari cycle, a very important collection of dreaming narratives from the Western Desert region. The country in this painting is located far to the west of Yuendumu and spans the vast area across the Gibson and Great Sandy Deserts. The cycle tells the story of a group of ancient creation ancestors known as the Tingari, who travelled across the country. The Tingari took different forms of some human and some animal. Through their adventures, they either created or became the physical features of the sites they visited including rocky outcrops, waterholes, tree, salt lakes and ochre deposits.
