Death Of An Indigenous Icon

 

We are saddened to learn of the death of 82 year-old Tommy Yannima Watson who died in Alice Springs on the 26th November 2017.  Tommy produced scores of glorious paintings reflecting an extraordinary ability to abstract his deep understanding of Pitjanjatjara law and legend.

He is held in high esteem both nationally and internationally. His passing leaves a significant loss to the indigenous art movement. Our sincere condolences to his family and friends.
