Harry Dixon Mptyane

Harry Dixon Mptyane was born on the Utopia Homestead c.1965. Harry is the full nephew of renowned artist, Angelina Pwerle. His mother is Angelina's sister, Molly Dixon Knagle, and his farther is Albie Dixon Pwerle. Harry also has two brothers and four sisters. His country is Ahalpere country, and his dreamings are the Bush Plum and the Wild Possum.

Very little is known of his life. He returned to Camel Camp in Utopia in 2005 and requested materials to create some artworks. The sculptures he produced all have a very special quality. He shows a very keen sense of observation, and each figure is like a portrait - facial features, body shape, physical stance are unique and full of character.

Harry Dixon Mptyane's first exhibition was held at Niagara Galleries in 2006.
