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.
The Artwork's Story as told by Walter:
The 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, some human and some animal. As the Tingari travelled over vast areas of country, they held initiations and other ceremonies, caused and encountered raging bushfires, hunted game and fought and killed one and another and brought them back to life. In the course of these adventures, they either created or became the physical features of the sites they visited, forming rocky outcrops, waterholes, trees, salt lakes and so on.
