Born in 1950 near Lake Mackay in the Central desert, Warlimpirrnga Tjapaltjarri was part of the last remaining Pinutpi clan to leave the desert homelands for the Papunya settlement in 1984. 

An important Elder of the Pintupi clan, Warlimpirrnga paintings often reflect imagery of the winds' journey across the sandhills of the central desert and that of the sacred 'Tingari Cycle'. He is one of the most well known of Central Australia's artists.

Excerpt from the 'Centralian Advocate' newspaper, Friday 26th of October 1984 :

" They are Walimpi Tjapangardi, the oldest of the men; Pirti Tjapaltjari, the other man; Narnoona Nangala and Papalanya Nangala, the two elder women; Thomas Tjapangardi and his brother Yatajarri Tjapangardi; Takarria Napaljuri, the woman in her 20s; and the two teenage girls Yalti Napangardi and Yukultji Napangardi."
