Bambatu Napangardi [c1942-]

Born in the early 1940s, Bambatu Napangardi grew up living the traditional nomadic hunting and gathering bush life with her extended family. She began her artistic career by painting ancestral dreamtime stories handed down to her by her mother and her father and also from her internationally renowned husband, the late Dinni Campbell Tjampitjinpa [d2000]. Her paintings traditionally depict aspects of women's ceremonies. Her trademark style focuses on strong iconic linear painting in line and dot work. Her works have been extensively exhibited and collected worldwide.
