Biography

George Hairbrush Tjungurrayi (b. 1943, Australia) is an Australian Aboriginal artist who began painting in 1976 for the Papunya Tula Artists.

His works emphasize on the Tingari stories and patterns from his ancestral country, covering sites around Kiwirrkura, Lake Mackay, Karku, Ngaluwinyamana and Kilpinya to the north-west of Kintore across the West Australian border. Over time, his art style has developed from the typical Western Desert image with subtle hues to the now brightly contrasting tones.

George was a finalist in the Wynne Prize 2007. In 2003, he was also voted as one of the “50 Most Collectable artists” by the Australian Art Collector magazine. Originally his artwork employed the typical Western Desert image bound to subtle hues, however his art style has evolved and re-shaped to include the brighter hues which dominates his canvases.
