Watson was born into a family of established Warlpiri artists—who would take him out bush, around Nyirripi and Yuendumu, showing him sites and teaching him the traditional ways of his country. He paints his Mother’s Watiya-warnu Jukurrpa (Seed Dreaming) and his grandfather’s Ngapa Jukurrpa – Puyurru (Water Dreaming), stories passed down to him through the many generations. These stories are creation stories that relate to his family’s traditional country, traditions that stretch back for millennia. He uses an unrestricted palette to depict his traditional iconography, at the same time developing a modern individualist style, using bold designs in a variety of contexts. In 2017 he also produced a small number of prints.

Warlukurlangu Artists is famous for its gloriously colourful acrylic paintings and limited edition prints.
