Taking flora and fauna inspiration unique to his Australian desert life, Jimmy Pike utilised whatever medium he needed to express his stories in his art, and not necessarily traditional ones. Lino printing was a favourite medium and he had a passion for the vibrancy of felt tip pens.
A selection of his designs are available on a wide range of high-performance furnishing textiles and wall vinyl substrates, digitally printed in Sydney, Australia.
There are 7 designs in his ‘Desert Goes Digital’ collection, all available in a variety of colourways – or, work with Materialised’s in-house design team to customise to suit your project. The collection offers a contemporary interpretation of an amazing, timeless range of designs on modern high-quality fabrics and wall coverings from an iconic indigenous artist.
In the words of Jimmy – “Tread softly, fire is your friend, protect the water and celebrate the universal laws of nature, travel and maintain the country, there’s plenty for all, continue to dream”.
