About the Artist
Charles Jangala Inkamala was born in 1968. His mother�s Country is Papunya and his father�s Country is Ntaria (Hermannsburg). He lives in Mparntwe / Alice Springs and began painting with Bindi Mwerre Anthurre Artists in 2017.
Charles often experiments with perspective in his works, combining aerial views with ground views in the one piece. His playful use of depth is amplified by his distinctive vivid palettes. Prior to painting at Bindi, Charles primarily worked with graphite and coloured pencil, coloured markers and ball-point pen. His work is fresh and exciting, and he holds much potential as an emerging artist at Bindi Mwerre Anthurre Artists.
