I recently stumbled across the work of Nathan Mundraby, Indigenous Australian artist.
Mundraby, along with legendary photographer Russell James, (Perth born! woot woot) have created a series of incredible images that touch on the whimsical nature of the untouched environment.
Fusing James' photographic talent with Mundraby's traditional artistic practices, they have created intricate, fluid forms from powerful feminine energy (mostly from my girl Nicole Trunfio!), resulting in works that are not only balanced, but harmonious.
NOMAD TWO WORLDS has "evolved from James' individual attempt to understand the clash of ancient and modern cultures he witnessed growing up in Australia to what it is today - a powerful expression of partnership, reconciliation, and economic opportunity in action through art, music and film that has become a global example of true collaboration across deep cultural divides."

He is also recognised and allowed to claim ownership to the Djirrbal Tribe - Ravenshoe/Upper Tully. Nathan is a 7th generation descendant of a proud Mandingalbay woman and Tablelands Yidinji/Djirrbal man. Nathan has the Djirrbal Indigenous given name of Midin (possum) given by his father’s mother - Dowiti Yarrakali. His Yidinji tribal name is Yabulam (black cane). He was named after a great tribal elder of generations past. Nathan was taught by his grandparents, parents and Aboriginal Elders of the ways of his ‘people’ through stories, dancing and art."
