Yinimala Gumana


Son of Dhakawal. Assisted Gawirrin on his NATSIAA First Prize pol. After his father's death he has been raised by legendary elder and artist Gawirrin Gumana AO, his father's brother.

Yinimala has patiently assisted his unlce or classifactory father with the cross hatching on many of his major works. He has also travelled to exhibitions with him. He has also been educated on the Yolnu law in ceremony. Accordingly the maturity of his artwork and manner is striking for one so young.
