Beau Pennefather Motlop

I grew up in Cairns, Far North Queensland from the age of eight years old. My background includes Aboriginal from the Jirrabal tribe of the Surrounding Cairns region, Torres strait island descendance from the Wagedoegam tribe of Mabuiag Island as well as Ngapuhi from New Zealand. My Torres Strait Island Totems are Crocodile, Snake, Stonefish and Remora. My Aboriginal Totem is Dingo.

2006 is when I started to take my art practice seriously and began experimenting with various mediums including pencil, pastels and acrylic paint I now do the majority of my artwork digitally.

I love to create depth and dimensions with colours and size differences, I use an abundance of detail and intricate patterns, but I also like to balance out my artwork with emptiness and quiet. My motifs and circular patterns are a unique combination drawn from my three Indigenous heritages.
