Born in the Gibson Desert east of Kiwirkurra in the early 1960's, Walala Tjapaltjarri was a member of a small group of Pintupi who made international headlines when they walked out of the desert in 1984 due to severe drought and met Europeans for the first time.

The works are completely unique in style, and the artist is represented in many major collections including those of the Art Gallery of NSW, Artbank and AMP in Australia, and in a growing number of international collections.
