Darby Jampijinpa Ross was one of the grand old men of Australian Aboriginal painting when he passed away in 2002, just days after celebrating his 100th birthday.
 
 
Within the framework of his culture Darby was a rainmaker, responsible for singing up the seasonal rains that nurture his parched desert homeland. He was a custodian of traditional culture passing on his knowledge to susequent generations and was noted for the vibrant color choices of his paintings, which often recounted creation mythologies related to the seasonal rain.
