Aboriginal lawman and artist, Tommy Watson, commenced painting in 2000 and produced a relatively small number of major works prior to his death in 2018.
He was a senior Pitjantjatjarra elder who regards his paintings as his beautiful country and is symbolically passing on very important cultural knowledge.
His incredible attention to detail is reflected in the glorious works that he creates. The fusion of colour, texture and form allow the viewer to experience his country.
Tommy’s immense talent was recognised in 2007 when he was one of only eight Aboriginal artists that were selected for the permanent exhibition at the prestigious Musee de Quay Branly in Paris 2007.
