Stephen Pitjara Petyarre

Stephen Pitjara (Petyarre) is an Aboriginal man from Utopia, South Australia. Utopia is a major art center of renowned reputation. Clearly the skills and techniques have been handed down to Stephen, a father of two young children. He was introduced to Indigenu by Christine Brown from a nearby center. He is partnered with Bernadine, also a painter, and they have both become friends of Indigenu. As a couple they spend time developing their art and are producing working that is inspirational all based on traditional themes.     He is true to his culture and his works are reflective of this. He is confident with his work but timid as a person, often characteristic of the people. Indigenu is proud to be associated with.     Stephen and his family and looks forward to assisting him raise his artistic profile as his work is truly breathtaking.   Stephen's paintings shown below include the "fire rain", "spirit man" and "yam flower" styles.
