Vincent Namatjira: Art Basel Miami Beach - Art Collector

Vincent Namatjira, ‘Self portrait after Henry Taylor’, 2018. Acrylic on canvas, 122 x 155cm. Courtesy: the artist and THIS IS NO FANTASY dianne tanzer + nicola stein, Fitzroy.

  Namatjira´s imagery reflects on Australia's colonial history, with recurring references to Captain Cook, the British Royal family, political leaders, and contemporary aspects of Indigenous life.  His latest works reveal his growing interest in contemporary discourse around international political issues.

Drawing on imagery from popular culture, Namatjira paints influential figures from his studio in remote Australia. By bringing those people closer to his own life, he reflects on and reinforces their far-reaching impact on everyday existence around the globe. The political is always personal.
