David Brown

“I was born in Perth but grew up in Mulan and went to school there before returning to Perth for boarding high school. My mother, Ivy Robertson, was an artist at the art centre in Balgo. After school I went west of Alice Springs to spend time with my Dad and his family at Kiwirrkurra community. I watched the old people paint there. ”

David enjoyed living in Kiwirrkurra and learnt much from his grandfather about his Country, particularly from famous Papunya Tula artist Uta Uta Tjangala. As an adult, David painted occasionally for Papunya Tula when he visited Kiwirrkurra.

“I was a good drawer at school and have always work on improving my skills. I can do both styles, desert style and realism style.”
