Tommy Watson's bold use of colour depicts the stories of his ancestors who have passed on to him the sacred rights of telling the 'Dreamtime' stories. Tommy Watson started painting in 2001, in Irrunytju, a small community on the tri-border of South Australia, Central Australia, and Western Australia. Tommy Watson is a very celebrated indigenous artist, who has reached unbelievable heights throughout his short 'painting' cycle, approximately 10 years, in "2003 Watson was one of eight Indigenous artists, alongside Paddy Bedford, John Mawurndjul, Ningura Napurrula, Lena Nyadbi, Michael Riley, Judy Watson, and Gulumbu Yunupingu, who collaborated on a commission to provide works that decorate one of the Musée du Quai Branly's four buildings completed in 2006".
