About

Don is one Arhnem Land’s most senior and respected artists. Don fondly remembers painting amongst the stone country with some of its most recognized artists
including Bardayal ‘Lofty’ Nadjamerrek, and Kalarriya ‘Jimmy’ Namarnyilk.

Don had his first solo exhibition in 2004. The Australian newspaper Nicholas Rothwell wrote, "By any standards this debut exhibition is worthy of sustained attention in the national media". The freshness of Don's paintings prompted the National Gallery of Australia to acquire two works from the RAFT Artspace in Darwin. He was selected for the prestigious National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Awards in Darwin in 2003, 2005, 2006 and more recently in 2014.

Don lives in Gunbalanya (Oenpelli) in western Arnhem Land and can often be found painting under the verandah at Injalak Arts.
