(1930 - 2004) Sam Tjampitjin was a highly gifted artist and one of Balgo’s finest male painters. Sam’s art primarily focused on the sacred sites of men’s ceremonial business. It was distinguished by the unique way in which he adapted the sacred designs seen on men’s ceremonial objects into minimal iconography, representing maps of these sites.
