Kunda Beamo was born in Melbourne in 1941 and is of Yamadji (WA) descent. He is a self-taught artist who draws inspiration from reclaiming his identity and culture. Kunda Beamo’s work has been included in numerous exhibitions, museums and art awards around Australia and overseas.
Kunda's work represents people, elders, spirits, dancers and animals portrayed in a combination of both contemporary and traditional techniques.
Here Kunda Beamo depicts the tribes gathering at a meeting place near the river. He shares with us that the dots around the circles are depicting Aboriginal people sitting around the campfire.
