Graham Gilbert Wiradjuri people
Graham is a Wiradjuri man with connections to central New South Wales. Graham grew up on Wiradjuri land in the country town of Condolbolin. His totem is the goanna (griiawaa), an animal he has dreamt about since he was a young boy and to which he maintains a strong connection to today. Graham's paintings feature a broad range of native Australian animals. His paintings reflect the connection of animals to their landscapes and often reference the hunter and gatherer lifestyle lived by his ancestors. Graham is a self-taught, colour blind artist that is inspired by the late Clifford Possum Tjapaltjarri. Graham lives in Victoria with a committed art practice and continues to express his culture through his artwork.
