Cyril’s mother’s and Father’s country is Jartuti. He is the grandson of deceased Martu artist Pinyirr and senior Martumili Artist Bugai Whyoulter.
Cyril grew up in Parnngurr and Punmu communities. He now lives with his wife and children in Newman.
Cyril learnt to colour in pencil from his grandfather Larry Patterson.
“My mum’s father came from Kirriwirri in the North. I can paint that way too. I like painting, it’s a good way to learn from old people, keep the stories going. Yunkurra (Billy Atkins), my nyamu (grandfather), he’s guiding me about what I can paint and share. My closest family is the Taylor mob; uncle Muuki, Wokka, and Ngalangka. They help me too.”
