Gary Wilson Reid Tjampitjinpa


Gary Wilson Reid Tjampitjinpa was born around 1966 and originates from the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Lands of Sawn Hill in Victoria.

However Gary was adopted out into a non-indigenous family very early on in life and thus, did not start re-connecting fully with his indigenous culture until his early 20’s when he retuned to his country in Swan Hill.

Gary thereafter married renowned artist Lily Campbell Napangardi.

Gary paints his dreaming ‘Nantucker’ which is a vivid portrayal of his country and also often paints ‘Lizard Dreaming’ and ‘Water Dreaming’.

Gary uses bright hues of blue, red, orange and yellow to create highly detailed artworks, which are distinct representations of Aboriginal culture, the land and the water flowing through it.
