Maddison Gibbs

 

My name is Maddison Gibbs, I am a proud Barkindji woman and grew up in Dubbo, NSW. My artworks are based on my culture, people and surroundings, they tell stories of past and present by using contemporary methods and ideologies. My works include political statements and educational information regarding Aboriginal issues, a subject which I am extremely passionate about. I use different mediums for my works including drawing, ceramics, printmaking and animation.

 

I am currently studying a Bachelor of Animation at the University of Technology. I have completed my Certificate III Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Cultural Arts at Eora College and I am also completing Certificate IV this semester.

 

My latest works include a design entered in the Vivid Light Show and the restoration of the 40,000 years mural at the Block, Redfern. I have also participated in the Sydney Fringe Festival, Hobiennale at Moonah Arts Centre, Tasmania, Hall & Wilcox emerging artist exhibition, RANZCO Live Painting at the MCA and conducted a mural workshop with Pymbal Ladies College. I received the 2019 Australian Museum Young Indigenous Artist Fellowship, the Rotary Club of Sydney Soukup Animation Grant and the Bob Morgan International Scholarship.
