Charlie Tjapangati

Charlie Tjapangati was born at the site of Tjulurrunya, west of Kiwirrkura in approximately 1949. He is the younger brother of Nanyuma Napangati, who also paints for Papunya Tula Artists.

During the 1960's Charlie travelled into Papunya by truck with one of Jeremy Long's government patrols. He was a young teenager at the time and was initiated in Papunya after arriving.

Charlie commenced painting for Papunya Tula Artists in 1978, and in 1999 he contributed to the Kintore Men's painting as part of the Western Desert Dialysis Appeal.
