Beautiful Mural Brightens Coffs Central
Nelli Gallops bright and bold artwork depicting Gurruuja the whale and Gawnggan the brolga, the beloved ancestors of the Gumbaynggirr people, took first prize. She is of Aboriginal descent and works actively with the local Gumbaynggirr people when using cultural elements in her work. Nelli is known for painting large scale murals, often inspired by Aboriginal dreamtime stories. For Nelli a main aim of her artworks is to create ‘interconnectedness’, to create a connection ‘to country’ for the community.
This new Mural has recently been installed on the Vernon Street side of Coffs Central. Stop by and check it out!
