Further information

“This is my painting about the country where I was born. I grew up in a traditional way, none of us had any clothes and we’d never seen houses. Back then we lived in the bush, slept in the warm sand and lived on the bush tucker. My painting is where it all started. This country is my home. I know this land all over, this is strong country. These things, everything, is my memory – my knowledge. I like painting my country, I like to paint the memories of my country.” Peter Mungkuri 2018
