Desert Psychedelic – The Art of Jimmy Pike


Desert PsychedelicA Catalogue of Jimmy Pike’s work. Born in the Great Sandy Desert area of Western Australia, Jimmy Pike worked as a stockman and in his spare time did carvings, which he sold to tourists in Fitzroy Crossing. In the 1980s, while serving a prison sentence, Jimmy Pike joined an art class and began to paint, working in printmaking and produce linocuts. His work is characterised by the used of bold shapes in strongly contrasting earth colours. Those of you who have gone to art colleges may have heard of his work.
