My Country Artwork © Lindsay Malay
Gija man, Lindsay Malay works from the Warmun Art Centre, located 200kms outside of Kunnannura in the Kimberley, Western Australia. Warmun is renounced for its artists' use of natural ochre and pigments to denote a contemporary expression of Country and culture and its reputation is felt both nationally and internationally due to the calibre of highly successful artists in the community.
Lindsay's work is vibrant and transfixing, telling the story of Warlawoon, the Country he inherited from his Grandfather and of which his family regained traditional ownership of in 2010.
Lindsay and Melbourne based Wiradjuri woman, Denni Francisco, founder and designer of fashion label Ngali, have collaborated to translate Lindsay's art into textile designs. This exciting collaboration was established through a shared vision of celebration culture, showcasing Aboriginal centred design and instigating mutually beneficial partnerships across the country between cross-sector Aboriginal businesses.
Ngali brings together a talented group of gifted Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists who showcase their artwork through the mediums of painting, photography and artistic creation. We translate that art into clothing using silk fabrics to create Aboriginal themed designer clothing through ethical fashion.
