Commemorative Issue: Indigenous Culture
This stamp issue features paintings by five living Indigenous artists
- Judy Napangardi Watson, Tjuruparu Watson, Jan Billycan,
Elaine Russell and Nura Rupert. These artists hail from locations
across Australia - from central desert regions to urban Sydney
- and together their works exemplify the vitality of Indigenous art
across the country. They are selected from the rich collections of
Indigenous art held in our major public collections - in this case
the National Gallery of Australia, the Art Gallery of South Australia,
and the National Gallery of Victoria.
