Buku Larnggay Mulka Bark Paintings

"This is letting you know so you will learn from us. Learn from these words like we have learnt from you. Your knowledge, your education, your background, we are using it. Some of the law and some of the culture of yours. OK and in the same way you must learn..."<br>

Djambawa Marawili, Senior Artist & Madarrpa clan leader<p>

Mata Mata Homelands Art

Batambil's artworks can be purchased direct from the artist. Also from Buku Larrngay Mulka at Yirrkala and other community-owned arts centre in Arnhem Land.

It is estimated that to develop production facilities to a first phase of development would cost approximately $30,000. This would allow a slab to be poured, a permanent roof to be erected and some other minimum facilities to be established.

Roebourne Art Group

Our art centre is located in Roebourne town, also known as Yirramagadu, fifteen hundred kilometres north of Perth. We work together to share our culture and stories through the artwork so that our community and culture stay strong. The paintings reflect our artists individual style, and their unique way of interpreting their stories, culture and the place they live. We create vibrant contemporary paintings that are both beautiful and meaningful.

Benson Dickerson

I am twenty three years old. When I was born my mum Debra Dickerson was only sixteen years old. My Dad split up with her soon after I was born. I am the oldest of five children.
It was hard for my Mum to look after us. I went to live with my Nana and Pop when I was about six.
When I was nine I first got into trouble with the police. I was stealing and I went to juvenile prison and adult prison from that time on. It was a cycle of trouble that just seemed to follow me everywhere.

Ricky Scott

I came to the Pilbara in 1998 from Queensland and this is where I am still living today.<p>

I studied Aboriginal law in Roebourne in 2001.<p>

At the beginning of 2002 I came to the Bujee-Nhoorr-Pu studio in Cossack to help with the ongoing establishment of the Art Gallery. It was then that I realized art was a big interest in my life.<p>

I developed skills along the way and I feel I have a good eye for art. Im very enthusiastic in my work.<p>

Leanne Allan

I was born in Roebourne where I am still living today. My Tribe is the Yindjibarndi Tribe.<p>

I have been involved with art since 2002, but I have always been interested since I was a young child.<p>

What got me painting was browsing through other peoples work.<p>

I enjoy drawing as well as painting, but painting I enjoy the most.<p>

I like to experiment with different techniques rather than stick to the same pattern.<p>
