Yep, thats me,a LARRAKIYA man, from the top end creating Centralian Aboriginal
Art on Computer.
I started doing this type of art around the middle of 1997 after I had finished
doing the Introduction to Computer Operations Courses with ASSET TRAINING
in Alice Springs. The type of art work that I do, is based on the Traditional
Dot paintings done on canvas with Brush and Paints by the local Aboriginal
Artists of the Alice Springs Area.
With me its ; OLD TRADITION with NEW TECHNOLOGY. the easy way.
It has been SUGGESTED that I am the FIRST Aboriginal Artist in the N.T.
to use this new technology,but in my own mind I dont think so, I reckon
there are other Aboriginal Artists doing the same thing as I am, probably
I have been living in Alice Springs since 1994, I had a triple bypass Operation
in 1996 and in mid 1997 I took up the challenge of this NEW TECHNOLOGY.ha
ha. BUT, without the HELP , Advice and the Encouragement to KEEP going from
good friends such as Mr Dave Hurling of Asset Training , Mr Trevor Van Werren
of QANTM and Mr Ron Brien of DESART,
I dont know where or what Id be doing to-day?. THANKS YOU GUYS. Frank (Basho)
