Patju Stanley Presley, a Pitjantjatjara man in his late sixties, has evolved into one of the most innovative artists of the Western Desert art movement. His unfathomable knowledge of his ancestor’s Tjukurpa (Dreamings) and tribal laws, make him a natural spiritual leader of the Irrunytju Community. Patju’s stunning compositions of his forefather’s Tjukurpa are a true testament of his brilliance as a master painter. The artist has works held with the National Gallery of Victoria, National Gallery of Australia, the Art Gallery of New South Wales and many major corporate and private collections.
