The Art of Hughie Ah Won

Urban Wandjina - the Unique Art of Hughie Ah Won

 

Hughie Ah Won has had a colourful life.  

 

He comes from the beautiful hot red land of The Kimberley in far north Western Australia, and has travelled vast tracts of the country, towns and cities of Australia. He has always taken the stories and Spirits of his culture with him to these urban places - the Wandjina have shared his journey. 

 

Hughie has returned to his homeland of The Kimberley and now paints his stories and the Dreamtime Spirits to pass on to the younger generation of his people.   His works exude colour - both aesthetically and spiritually in the way he represents how the stories and Spirits are woven into the country and into the cities.  The Wandjina are at home in the quiet of the Kimberley, however, whilst enjoying the curiosities of the city, they are eager to share with the urban culture stories of their existence and traditions and also reminders to “pull over” and “learn to be still”.  Hughie Ah Won presents these stories and reminders by way of his exhibition “URBAN WANDJINA”.
