Nyoongar Art Award Poster


Recognising the original inhabitants and custodians on this WA Day with a throwback to a poster I designed back in 2010 for the Nyoongar Art Award.

Taking the Aborigine words for Swan River, "Derbal Yaragan" was handwritten to form the shape of the river that runs through our city and suburbs. The fluidity of the writing resembles the flowing water, while the structure typed words represent the buildings and banks alongside the river.

The award aims to promote, celebrate and acknowledge the rich and diverse contemporary Aboriginal art from the Nyoongar Nations.
