Binna is a renowned Aboriginal artist passionate about sharing his knowledge, Dreamtime stories and creative visual interpretations of Kuku Yalanji life with people. Binna began painting at a very young age and has been an artist for over 30 years.
His work is inspired by Kuku Yalanji country; its animals, Great Barrier Reef and Wet Tropics Rainforests. Binna’s contemporary style combines traditional Aboriginal techniques, concepts and stories that have been handed down within his family for generations with modern mixed media and textured finishes to create stunning original artworks that have been sought after by private clients and collectors from all over the world who seek a deeper, more personal understanding of Australian Aboriginal cultures.
“Janbal” means Blue Quandon, a rare and vibrant blue skinned rainforest berry eaten by Cassowaries and found in Kuku Yalanji country.
