Shorty Robertson Jangala [c1934-]

A respected central desert senior artist, Shorty faithfully interprets the traditional Warlpiri dreamings in a colourful and energetic manner. Although now well into his seventies, Shorty is still an active member of the Warlukurlangu Co-operative. He lives at Yuendumu with his wife and artist Lady Nungarrayi Robertson. As well as featuring in many overseas collections, local institutions that house his work include the Art Gallery of New South Wales in Sydney, the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne and the National Gallery of Australia in Canberra.
