Summary
In the remote West Australian Aboriginal community of Bidyadanga, a new art movement has emerged. At its helm is a young Aboriginal man, Daniel Walbidi. Daniel was born and raised near Broome but his parents, grandparents and extended Yulparija tribe come from an area around the Percival Lakes in the Great Sandy Desert. Exiled from their traditional homeland, a distinct yearning for their own desert country emerged. With the realisation that they would never return to their tribal homeland, Yulparija elders worried that their traditional stories would be lost. A desire to paint and record their stories for their decendants became a pressing concern. From listening to stories from his elders, young Daniel Walbidi started painting the country of his forebears. Daniel's early painting inspired the old people to apply brushes to canvas also. After a series of sell out exhibitions, these unique works became the "next big thing" in the Aboriginal art scene
