Daniel Ngurruwuthun

Daniel is a Yolŋu man who was was born in Yirrkala and grew up as a young boy at his family’s homeland of Rurrangala in North East Arnhem land.

Daniel’s father Dula Ngurruwuthun was an accomplished painter and has works in national institutions such as the NGA. His father taught him about many of the images and styles and processes in making works, and now Daniel feels strongly about continuing to share and paint these images.

Daniel is a carver and is quickly building his skills as a sculptor as well as yiraka maker. He now lives in Angurugu with his wife and two children and speaks both Yolŋu Matha and Anindilyakwa.
