He attended Milingimbi Methodist Mission school spasmodically when he was young, and later worked as a farmer and carpenter at his lonely outstation, sometimes he went to Oenpelli to earn money as a buffalo shooter. Eventually Bangala married his promised girl wife and fathered 4 boys and 3 girls. Two of the girls have since passed away. England is a fully initiated elder of his tribe and a foremost recorder on bark and on Arches Rives paper of the history and religion of his ancestors. He is always at the forefront of tribal ceremonies because of his wisdom and knowledge. He was taught to paint by his father, also a famous bark painter, but none of his sons have gone through their age-grading ceremonies and therefore have not been allowed to paint, so that his unusual style could die out with him.
The art of Bangala is hanging in major art galleries and museums and is featured in authentic art books. He has exhibited in most Australian states and has also travelled with dance groups as a talented performer, singing and dancing in the traditional tribal way.
