Biography Long Jack Phillipus Tjakamarra
A resident of Papunya, Long Jack Phillipus Tjakamarra is one of the men credited with founding the Western Desert art movement. His oeuvre encompasses the evolution of desert painting from the initial representational depictions of ceremonial events on board to the creation of grand canvases that echo the scale of traditional ground mosaics.
In the winter of 1971, Long Jack Phillipus was among those men who painted the Honey Ant Mural on the north-facing wall of the Papunya School. The convergence of Honey Ant ancestors from north, east, south and west at Papunya, was selected as the theme for the mural, for it showed that men from distinct language groups could work together on a common project and the education of their children.1
