Biography from Cheffins:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Oscar Namatjira was born in 1922.  He attended mission school before joining the Army Labour Gang in 1942.  Three years later he returned to the mission and took up painting. 

Oscar`s work was perhaps most strongly influenced by his father Albert Namatjira.  His landscapes are beautifully drafted and colored.  Early works display a delicate palette and capture subtle changes of light and shadow on the landscape.  Oscar`s best work is comparable to Albert`s for technique and beauty.  His ghost gums are also masterly executed.  Early works were signed Oscar Namatjira.
