Brian Robinson’s art reflects the tropical marine environment surrounding Waiben (Thursday Island) and the inhabitants of that environment. It is an essential part of his life and culture, imbued with the customs, traditions and lifestyles of Torres Strait Island people. The animals from ancestral stories and their presence today are an integral feature of Robinson’s work. The spirit and natural world are so intertwined that one influences the other; they are essential to the everyday existence of the Torres Strait Island people as well as their culture and beliefs.
