About the Artist

About the Artist

Brian Robinson has literally carved out a distinctive presence within a remarkably talented generation of Indigenous Australian artist. Raised on Waiben and now Cairns-based, he has become known for his graphic prints, contemporary sculptures and public art that read as episodes in an intriguing narrative, revealing the strong tradition of storytelling within his family and his community.

Like the tidal currents that course through the Straits, a myriad of cultural influences run through his ancestry and own lived experience. His family are fisher folk whose Roman Catholic faith exists in synergy with traditional spirituality. Robinson’s artworks present an intoxicating worldview. A constellation of details absorbs you into spaces that are at once foreign and familiar, and a gentle but liberating sense of disorientation and surprise takes hold.
