About the Painting

|The black swan Maali in Nyungar language is featured on the Derbal Yerrigan or more commonly known as the Swan River, when on country walking alongside the Derribal Yerrigan you can see the Maali wading on the waters and are commonly seen in groups of two or more, this artwork is inspired by the connection Aboriginal people have with the Maali and the connection to the
Derbal Yerrigan. The Maali is one of my Nyungar totems that i have adopted.” – Julianne Wade

About the Artist

Kaya I’m a whadjuk Nyungar artist Born in Subiaco Perth western Australia, and raised in Ngaruawahia New Zealand from Tainui Decent on my dad’s side.

I’ve always found that by participating in arts mainly painting and sculptures and weaving it presents an opportunity to develop and provide freedom of individuality .. allows the artist to portray meaning and passion that is often buried deep within and begins the journey into healing and setting a connection to today’s world while taking into account the journey that has already been travelled .

I like to learn from my elders the traditional ways in which they would create art to tell stories and add my own twists on things to retell my own stories for future generations to come.
