'Dr' George Tjapaltjarri is a Pintupi artist working in a highly contemporary style. His paintings possess a wonderful boldness, conveying his strong, continuous association with his traditional country, ceremonies and the application of body paint designs. His subjects are that of Tingari Cycle and Snake Dreaming. He has been represented in major Australian exhibitions and his works have been acquired by public and private collections both in Australia and internationally. He has been painting in the Gallery Gondwana studios since the mid 1990's.

'Dr' George first came into contact with white society when he and his family walked out of the western desert in 1964. As a traditional Aboriginal medicine man, he has worked in association with the Kintore and Tjukurla Medical Clinics, hence the name 'Dr' George.

'Dr' George's paintings refer to the Tingari cycle, when a group of Ancestral beings travelled his country calling into existence the features and Beings of the landscape. This country is continually revitalised - through song, ritual dance, ceremonies and paintings - by the traditional owners of the land, of whom 'Dr' George is one of the senior custodians. His traditional country includes Karrinwarra, west of Kintore and the Kilinga - Wanampa region located west of Jupiter Well in the Gibson Desert.
