Papunya Tula Artists, NT Cat No. CT0509038
Private Collection, Vic

Charlie Tjapangati began painting for Papunya Tula Artists in 1977, after having observed the older men painting while living in West Camp, Papunya.

This painting depicts designs associated with the swamp site of Manakarra, north of Jupiter Well. In mythological times, a large group of Tingari Men visited this site before travelling east, passing through Walipalinpa and then to Kiwikurra. Since events associated with the Tingari Cycle are of a secret nature, no further detail was given.

In 2000, Charlie Tjapangati, along with a group of four men from Kiwirrkurra, travelled to Sydney to make a ground painting at the Art Gallery of New South Wales for the opening of Papunya Tula: Genesis and Genius. He has appeared in many group exhibitions and two solo exhibitions.
