Paddy Fordham

Famous for his Mimi Spirit paintings, Paddy Fordham celebrates and tells his Dreamtime stories thru the adventures of the Mimi Spirit as they dance across the canvas with their hunting spears and sacred totems.  On display in the foyer of the Hilton at South Wharf, these unique paintings are all for sale, 10% discount if you are a guest at the Hilton.

Paddy was born in Arhnem Land 1930 and passed away 2006. He was taught to paint by his father, but in his early years was a stockman and strong supporter of equal rights for Aboriginal people.  He painted on rock and bark, but in later years preferred to work on canvas.  His artworks are a reminder of the rich cultural heritage of his land.
