Tommy Watson is a Senior Pitjantjatjara painter who was born around 1935 at Anamarapita, 40kms from Irrunytju (also known as Wingellina) in Western Australia. In 2001, Tommy was one of the founding artists of the Irrunytju art centre. It was here that Tommy was taught to paint and his paintings career has taken off ever since. Today he stands as one of Australia's most renowned Aboriginal Artists in Australia and around the world. His work are collected by galleries around Australia and in a number of private collections here and internationally. In 2005, Tommy was commissioned along with Ningura Napurrula, Lena Nyadbi, Michael Riley, Judy Watson, John Mawurndjul, Paddy Bedford and Gulumbu Yunupingu to produce artwork to be permanently installed in the Musee du Quai Branly in Paris, France, which officially opened in 2006. Watson's work expresses the unique landforms of his country and the Tjukurpa law that inspires his artistic practice.
