Works from the National Maritime Museum Collection by Zenadth Kes (Torres Strait Islands) artist Alick Tipoti have been brought together in an exciting new exhibition.
With over 25 years of art practice, Tipoti is respected for his work in regenerating cultural knowledge and language. Guided by the traditional cultural practices of his people, Tipoti’s storytelling encompasses traditional cosmology, marine environments and ocean conservation – focusing on what it means to be a sea person.
Mariw Minaral brings together some of the finest examples of Tipoti’s unique and intricate linocut printmaking practice. The exhibition will also showcase his award-winning sculptural works, contemporary masks and film.
