Greg Kennedy Art


With works now displayed permanently at the Silver City Art Centre, Broken Hill, Greg has previously sold and sent work to Brisbane,Coffs Harbour, USA and Europe. Greg has also had work on display at Darwin's museum for the Telstra National Aboriginal Arts Awards in 1995.

He has studied Commercial and Graphic Art and has designed the logo for Marri Mi Aboriginal Health Service in Broken Hill. 

Greg was born in Wilcannia in 1966 and moved to Broken Hill at age 4. Greg and his family are "Barkinji" people, meaning "river people". His grandmother is a well known tribal elder known as Granny Mousie, and his grandfather, Watti Clark, is a well known Barkinji man.

Greg's work is on canvas and painted in acrylics. He has combined his aboriginality and art studies to evolve vivid, colourful and carefully worked pieces of art. Greg enjoys painting desert scenes depicting family activities, usually showing tracks leading to the "main camp". He particularly likes painting birds and wildflowers.

The main meeting place or "camp" is shown as a yellow circle with the face of a spiritual aboriginal Elder. The items shown at left can be seen in his paintings. Greg has made this his trade mark.
