This painting depicts the oldest living rainforest in the world, the Daintree Rainforest, where my ancestors the Kuku Yalanji people have lived for millennia. With the Rainforest Warrior in the foreground, it shows the connection that Aboriginal people have to the land and sea and still have a very strong spiritual connection to the land that our ancestors belonged to. In the background you can see the mouth of the Daintree River where my mother was born so this land is very special to me and my family. In the Kuku Yalanji language we call the land "Bubu" meaning country.

Luke Mallie, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, Kuku Yalanji & Kubin Village country

My inspiration for my artwork is my family, my Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture and my tropical surroundings. I’m very influenced by pop culture, animation and modern design. I feel that my artwork is my gift to help others see the beauty of Aboriginal culture, appreciate Indigenous issues, and bring joy to people through colourful art and designs.

While I was born and bred in Brisbane, my heritage is from North Queensland. My mother is from the Kuku Yalanji people in the Daintree/Mossman area where our totem is the crocodile. My father comes from Kubin Village on Moa Island in the Torres Strait Islands where our totem is the sea eagle.
