The authorised biography of Mick Namarari Tjapaltjarri
by Alec O’Halloran.
This lavishly illustrated book reveals the life story and art career of Mick Namarari Tjapaltjarri, a Pintupi man who became an award-winning Papunya Tula artist. He won the National Aboriginal Art Award (1991), the Alice Prize (1994, co-winner), and was the inaugural recipient of the prestigious Red Ochre Award (1994) – the only artist to receive all three awards.
