Jimmy Pike’s exciting and brilliant art is collected by every state gallery in Australia and is enormously popular internationally.
To celebrate the launch of the Desert Designs range, Target has supported the Jimmy Pike Trust 2014 Scholarship program. The beautiful artwork of renowned Walmajarri artist Jimmy Pike is featured in a one-off Designer for Target range by Desert Designs.
Desert Designs has been passionate about popularising Australia’s Indigenous culture worldwide through the art and stories of Jimmy Pike for the past 29 years, and by paying royalties to the Jimmy Pike Trust.
Target is proud to support the Jimmy Pike Trust’s scholarships as part of our broader commitment to promoting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art, culture and design. The Jimmy Pike Trust provides an annual scholarship for Kimberley artists to develop printmaking skills at Edith Cowan University. The residency also acts as a cultural exchange as the print studio team learns about the artists’ community and culture. Ngumban artist Francine Steele, Jimmy’s niece, and Jennifer Dickens from Mangkaja Arts at Fitzroy Crossing, created lino and screen prints and exhibited them through the residency at Edith Cowan University.
