Kurun Warun whose name means 'Hissing Swan' lives in the Noosa hinterland in South East Queensland. He is best known for his exceptional art and talent as a didgeridoo musician. He expresses his culture through art and music and has won international recognition in these fields. Starting at just eight years of age, he has become a highly sort after artist; his works now are valuable pieces of collectable aboriginal art. His aboriginal dot paintings have a traditional meaning which is not always immediately discernible, but within the colours, lines and space we are led through an underlying story. Kurun Warun also finds expression through traditional dance and music. Being a highly accomplished didgeridoo musician, he has performed around the world in places as far apart as Italy and Korea. He played a role in the Sydney 2000 Olympic games as a traditional artist, has appeared on NBC in the United States and before Chelsea Clinton, the former US president's daughter.
