Billy Tjampitjinpa Kenda
Billy Tjampitjinpa Kenda is from Jay Creek in Tjoritja (West MacDonnell Ranges), his mother’s country. His father was a Ngaatjatjarra man from Docker River. Billy started painting in the Bindi Mwerre Anthurre Artist Studio in 2004. Primarily painting Jay Creek, Billy creates landscapes where the various textures of rocks and flora play against each other in a vivid pattern. Billy’s ability to evoke the beauty of the Central Desert in his paintings demonstrates his strong connection to his country.
