Aboriginal Dot Art
Bevan at Mindil Beach markets
Aboriginal dot art by Bevan Tjampitjinpa follows the traditions of his Anmatjere heritage.
Bevan was interested in his family's art from an early age and was taught the techniques used by the his elders.
Over a 10 year period he learnt the traditional ceremonies and laws of the desert region. He speaks fluent Anmatjere and knows how to hunt for bush tucker and bush animals.
He uses the traditional symbols to differentiate various landscape features into the canvas and to depict hunting stories and the women's hunting and gathering.
Bevans presentation of his artworkshows the world a beautiful and educational story of his culture, family group and the depth of spirituality of his people.
His paintings are displayed in many galleries across the Northern Territory, and you can often meet Bevan at the Mindil Beach Markets.
