    Gordon Hookey, Waanyi, b. 1961, lives and works in Brisbane.. Gordon Hookey belongs to the Waanyi people. His work combines figurative characters, iconic symbols, bold comic­like text, and a spectrum of vibrant colours. Through this idiosyncratic visual language he has developed a unique and immediately recognisable style. Hookey locates his art at the interface where Aboriginal and non­Aboriginal cultures converge. He explicitly attacks the establishment and implicates our current political representatives. Hookey’s visual aesthetic is breaking new ground with a foray into stop­motion animation, as evident in Terraist.
