Artist Profile  ---Richard Yukenbarri Tjakamarra

 Richard Yukenbarri Tjakamarra was born in the bush near Lake Gregory west of Balgo around 1960 and is the son of the well-known Balgo artist Lucy Yukenbarri. He was introduced to the Balgo mission as a young boy where he attended school

As a single man, Richard travelled south to the small Western Desert community of Kiwirrkura. He later married Takariya Napaltjarri, who also paints for Papunya Tula Artists and is a sister of Warlimpirrnga Tjapaltjarri.

 He spends most of his time in Kiwirrkura but often returns to Balgo to visit relatives and attend cultural events. Richard began working regularly for the Papunya Tula Artists in 2002 and his paintings refer to his father’s country, which extends from the area around Jupiter Well, west of  Kiwirrkura, north to Balgo.
