Bob Gibson has been painting with Tjarlirli Art since 2007. Bob was born at Papunya and moved with his family to Tjukurla at the time of the homelands movement in the late 1980’s. Bob’s bold and energetic paintings have put Bob amongst some of the most sought-after emerging artists in the contemporary indigenous art world. His unique and powerful style represents country in a wild and imaginative exploration of colour and form. Bob enjoys telling the stories from his father’s country of Patjarr and his mother’s country of Kulkurta.
Bob Gibson is distinguished by the freedom of his composition and his stylistic application of colour, which happens at a decisive pace. He carves up the canvas, creating wild shapes in an evocative and highly contemporary reinterpretation of country. Bob enjoys telling the stories from his father’s country around Patjarr and his mother’s country Kulkurta.
