Lyndon Davis was born and raised on the Sunshine Coast and is a Traditional Custodian of the Gubbi Gubbi /Kabi Kabi people. Lyndon’s art represents his deep connection to country and depicts stories of landscapes, flora and fauna. This is an early artwork of Lyndon’s but it captures an important animal of the area and was perfect to include in this collection. More recently, his style has evolved to include very bold, geometrical and symmetrical patterns representing those found in nature and coastal landscapes. Inspired by traditional pattern work on shields and other artefacts produced by his ancestors and also the designs painted on their bodies during ceremony, Lyndon celebrates the local evolution of Aboriginal art in this area.
