this mob x Aretha Brown @SIGNAL

this mob created this mural during workshops facilitated by activist and artist Aretha Brown (Gumbaynggirr). Aretha shared her knowledge and skills of painting murals, and asked the artists to respond to the theme of ‘isolation’ which has been interpreted and represented by each artist. this mob learnt new techniques and worked collaboratively to create this piece—which is a display of cultural and artistic pride.
