Kurun Warun

Kurun Warun's paintings of culture and environment use colours inspired by natural resources and cultural body markings.  Kurun Warun continues the great Aboriginal tradition of telling stories of the people and their environment, how they lived in their country and managed its resources. Kurun Warun refers to his work as “living culture – our story”. His use of colour reflects the primary resources of the people – red, black and white are used to convey cultural body markings and structures found in nature.
