Purnululu (the Bungle Bungle ranges in the East Kimberley) was Patrick’s grandfather’s and great grandfather's country.

Patrick Mung Mung was the son of senior Gija leader George Mung Mung a renowned teacher and community leader. He grew up on Texas Downs Station and was amongst the last to leave when the stockman life ended in the 1970s.

He began painting following his father's death in 1991 and developed his own distinctive style influenced by the generation of Warmun artists who preceded him. His paintings are noted for multiple perspectives, dynamic energy both in and of the landscape, and a delightful soft earthy palette.
