Darryl Pfitzner Milika has been practising his art in a variety of mediums for over 25 years: he has been the creator, the designer and principal artist or "special guest" contributing artist for 3 of Adelaide's most outstanding public sculptural works.

His gallery practice comprises numerous exhibitions locally, nationally or overseas and his works are held in collections both public and private; being described variously as an "Indigenous agent provocateur" an "urban warrior" or "passionate purveyor of gourmet art…..works which haunt the eye, the mind and the heart of the observer."

Now, as a senior artist in his 60th year he has been honoured by Tandanya, the National Aboriginal Cultural Institute with a retrospective survey of his public and private practice; the first exhibition of this kind for Tandanya and perhaps a fitting association considering his long involvement therein, dating back to Tandanya's opening exhibition 20 years ago.
