Michael Nelson is an ambassador of Aboriginal art and an incredibly important figure in the Australian art world. He had a major impact in the art world when he won the inaugural National Aboriginal Art Award in Darwin in 1984 and has never looked back.

He joined the ranks of artists such as Robert Rauschenberg, Alexander Calder and Andy Warhol when he was asked by BMW to create an "art car" and he was given the honour of having one of his works made into the beautiful tiled mosaic forecourt to Parliament House in Canberra. His Dreamings include Possum, Snake, Two Kangaroos, Flying Ant and Yam Dreamings for the area around Pikilyi. He had his first solo exhibition in 1989 and his paintings can now be found in major collections throughout the world.
