Kurun Warun whose name means 'Hissing Swan' lives in the Noosa hinterland in South East Queensland. He is highly regarded for his exceptionally different art style and his huge talent as a didgeridoo musician. He expresses his culture through art and music and has won international acclaim and recognition in both fields.
Starting at just eight years of age, he has become a highly respected and researched artist. Kurun's paintings have a powerful traditional meaning which is not always immediately discernible, but within the colours, lines and space we are led through an underlying story of sacred land and deep culture.
