Thomas Awang


Thomas Awang grew up in the Eastern Islands of the Torres straits.  A former student of the VCA, Thomas relocated to Melbourne to further develop his visual arts discipline and has resided in East St Kilda for the past seven years.
Thomas’s art is influenced by his physical and mental environment and his work is an expression of his interpretation of the collision between Indigenous and non-Indigenous cultures.
Born in a world of colour we do appreciate the “Black and White”, respectively printmaking.



Gillie Freeman


Gilbert Freeman is a Jiddabul man from the rainforest area of Far North Queensland. Art for Gillbert is a form of relaxation and helps to clear his head.  His paintings are inspired from the beauty of the rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef as well as the animals from where he lived.  Using earthy colours in his paintings, Gilbert tends now to use more colourful paints.
The Artist has been living in Melbourne for a number of years working with people who are suffering from drug and alcohol addiction.

 Uncle Les Stanley


Uncle Les Stanley was born in Mt Isa Queensland. Les is Waka Waka on his Father’s side and grew up on central Western Queensland. Les has been painting for over 30 years. His paintings are mostly depictions of animals but Les also paints landscapes and traditional dot paintings. Les has been resident of St Kilda for over 10 years and regularly paints in Fitzroy Street on Friday Nights and Acland Street on Sundays and now calls St Kilda Home.
