Pop culture prints inspired by Brian Robinson

Kala Lagaw Ya and Wuthathi artist Brian Robinson grew up on Waiben (Thursday Island) in the Torres Strait with Maluyligal and Wuthathi cultural heritage. Robinson creates works that combine traditional mark making and patterns from his culture with references to his favourite pop culture movies and comics. He is a multi-skilled contemporary artist, working in diverse media, including printmaking, sculpture and public art.

Year 10 students at Yorketown Area School created a linocut design synthesising learning about astronomy in ancient cultures, incorporating symbols from popular culture that were reminiscent of their childhood.
