Myths and More: Thomas Tjapaltjarri

Jaf Yusuf

Thomas Tjapaltjarri is one of three brothers who created Australian Aboriginal art from the late 1980s onwards. Their works depict ancestral myths, stories and histories, and are also inspired by designs traditionally painted on the body. The brothers tend to favour earthy colours and simple shapes and dotted lines. Inspired? Let's create!
