TOMMY WATSON

Date of Birth : c.1935
Country : Irrunytju
Language : Pitjanjatjarra

Tommy has had a career as an artist spanning just seven years to date and produced a relatively small number of major works. He is a senior Pitjantjatjarra elder who regards his paintings as his beautiful country and as symbolically passing on very important cultural knowledge to do with his country and land.

As an artist 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. His immense talent was recognised in 2007 when he was one of only eight artist that were selected for the permanent exhibition at the prestigious Musee de Quay Branly in Paris 2007.
