Artist Profile

Born c. 1940 in Winron, Pintupi country, WA, Bambatu Napangardi grew up in the bush living a traditional life with her family, hunting and living off the land, as the Aboriginal people did for thousands of years before her.
 
Whilst visiting relatives in Balgo she met Dinni Campbell Tjampitjinpa and they married in Balgo. Dinni Campbell’s older brother, Anatjari Tjampitjinpa, was one of the original artists painting in Papunya. He watched the old men painting during the 70’s and assisted his brother Anatjari for some months. By doing this he gained valuable experience in mixing colours, laying out stories onto canvas and helping to paint.
 
During one of these visits to Papunya in 1981, Uta Uta Tjangala invited Dinni as one of the men to assist him to paint a very large canvas depicting events at the site of Yumari. To be asked by Uta Uta to assist in painting was regarded as a great honour. When Dinni finished his apprenticeship and became an artist in his own right, he began painting for Michael Hollow Aboriginal Desert Art Gallery, in Alice Springs Melbourne and Sydney since 1991. Dinni Tjampitjinpa and Bambatu Napangardi have four sons and two daughters. Sadly Dinni passed away in 2000.
 
Bambatu was an ‘apprentice’ to Dinni for many years; she started painting her own dreamtime stories passed on to her by her Mother and her Father. The skills and techniques she has learnt from her husband and by watching the old man paint is now applied to her own paintings. Her works are quite typical of the old men and women from Kintore and Papunya. 
 
The techniques she uses in her work tend to focus on painting in line work and dotting techniques showing body paint designs and the many traditional symbols (icons) seen in Central Desert paintings. Bambatu loves to paint the dreaming stories of her people and to convey them to the world. Bambatu’s daughter Christine Nangala is now apprenticed to her. In this learning time, Bambatu is teaching Christine the skills she has learnt over so many years.

Artwork Description

Bambatu depicts the ceremonial journey of her ancestors. Her “Kungka Tjukurrpa” paintings show the journey paths travelled from Wirrulunga, east of Kirwirrkurra, to Kintore, Mount Leibig and the Papunya regions. At each location, the women would stop, dance and sing the cycle of each sacred site. In Bambatu’s paintings, the concentric circles represent waterholes, and the parallel dotted lines represent the path travelled.
