Woongaroong

“Sounds like Thunder”

Artist-to-watch, Woongaroong (“Sounds like Thunder”) is an independent urban indigenous artist, and brother of famous Queensland and world-renowned Aboriginal artist (Tio) Kurun Warun (Hissing Swan).

“Woonga” is a member of the Gunditjmara tribe, and his line of heritage can be traced back to Truganini, the last living Tasmanian Queen.

“Woonga”, like his brother Tio, sees his intensely colourful work as a development of contemporary Aboriginal abstract. His paintings represent the indigenous bush camp on a dry river bed; with people lying on the dry river bed and wind breaks at either end protecting them.
