The Jimmy Pike collection

About this collection

Walmajarri country is vibrantly presented in acclaimed and prolific artist Jimmy Pike’s collection of drawings, prints, and paintings held at the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies.

Donated in 2016 by Pat Lowe, the artist’s wife and long-time collaborator, the collection includes over 440 individual artworks, many adapted by Desert Designs in the 1980s and 1990s into internationally renowned fashion.

The Jimmy Pike collection offers insight into the life of an artist deeply connected to his country in the Great Sandy Desert.

AIATSIS would like to thank Pat Lowe and Peter Murray, CEO, Yanunijarra Aboriginal Corporation, for their support of this online presentation.
