Cowboy Louie Pwerle was born in 1941 on Old MacDonald Station in the Northern Territory. He is the younger brother of the highly regarded Utopian artist Louie Pwerle (deceased). Cowboy Louie's homelands lie on the Western side of the Sandover River on Utopia Station and stretch West on to Mt Skinner. He typically depicts his Turkey Dreaming over various traditional Sites on Utopia. He also paints Emu (Ankerr) Tucker Dreaming and Lizard/Goanna (Arlewatyerr) Dreaming. Cowboy's name is related to his reputation as a stockman and his penchant for wearing cowboy attire. His distinctive use of extremely fine ‘micro dots’ is a trademark style and results in a powerful and mesmerising effect. Cowboy lives at Mosquito Bore, Utopia, with his two wives, the sisters Carol and Elizabeth Kngwarreye. He is now carrying on the family tradition as he passes on his dreamings to his grandson.
