Bill Whiskey Tjapaltjarri
Bill's nickname 'Whiskey' is derived from whiskers, referring to his long, white beard.
Bill Whiskey Tjapaltjarri was born in the 1920s at Pirupa Akla, country located near the Olgas and to the west of Uluru. Bill Whiskey, who was a traditional healer and took a job as a cook while living at the Haasts Bluff mission, began painting in 2004. He depicts the rockholes near Pirupa and the story of his own journeys to Areyonga and Haasts Bluff. The bright colours in his painting are said to reflect his character—bold, colourful and strong in spirit.
