CLIFFORD POSSUM TJAPALTJARRI (c.1935-2002)
Clifford Possum Tjapaltjarri was born in roughly 1932 and is one of the most popular Aboriginal artists by collectors to this day. He was creating work before the Papunya Tula Movement, and his paintings stand out greatly from the many who also create within this style. Clifford is considered to be an artist who has brought together the worlds of Aboriginal Art and Contemporary Australian Art throughout his career, and has been recognized internationally for such accomplishments. He passed away in 2002 and was survived by his two daughters who are also artists.
