Colin Walangari Karntawarra McCormack is an Australian Aboriginal elder from Alice Springs who now lives and works in Sydney. He is an international award winning "Central Western Desert" painter and his colourful and spellbinding works tell the traditional Dreaming Stories of the world's oldest living culture.

Walangari's work has been exhibited extensively both in Australia and internationally. He uses his art as a means of cross-cultural communication and he is dedicated to improving the lot of his people. Multi talented, he is also a gifted musician, teacher, public speaker and performer with a wonderful stage presence.

Born in 1961, Walangari is of the Arrernte, Luritja, Walpiri, Yankuntjatjarra, Pintubi, Anmatjerre and Alyawarre peoples of the Central and Western Desert

His early childhood was spent living a traditional lifestyle in the Australian outback. His direct family line includes the famous water colourist Albert Namatjira and two of the founding fathers of the Papunya Tula movement, Clifford Possum and Paddy Carroll.

Walangari has two university degrees and has held many executive positions and directorships of various Aboriginal Councils. He chaired CAAMA (the Central Australian Aboriginal Media Association), the first Aboriginal owned radio station and was a director of the first Aboriginal television station, Imparja. He is committed to helping ensure that the voice of Aboriginal Australia is heard.
