George Ward Tjungurrayi (born c.1945) started painting at West Camp with the Papunya Tula Artists in 1976 and for many years prior he observed and learnt from senior Pintupi masters and his brothers Yala Yala Gibbs Tjungurrayi and Willy Tjungurrayi, two of the most distinguished members of the Papunya movement.
Kaakuratintja (Lake Macdonald) is often the subject of his work and his designs and stories were inherited through his brothers.
George has developed a distinct style, with loose lines of dots creating energetic networks over the entire surface of the canvas, painting striking Tingari stories. In 2004 won the Wynne Prize at the Art Gallery of New South Wales.
