Dr Jandamarra Cadd

Jandamarra is a Yorta Yorta and Dja Dja Warung descendent.  He is an inspirational man with many stories to tell. With his vibrant and expressive portraitures, Jandamarra’s artwork is emotive and insightful –  and is a powerful medium to bridge the story telling divide between Aboriginal and mainstream Australia.  Painting has been a way of life that has enabled him to express his creativity and story telling and in many of his paintings of the human condition, he seeks to be a peaceful voice for unity.   Jandamarra uses a variety of styles and mediums; with his unique blend of traditional aboriginal art techniques along with his own signature contemporary portraiture.
