Kurun Warun (Hissing Swan) is from Gunditjmara country in South Western Victoria. Kurun’s matrilineal heritage can be traced directly to Truganini, the last living Tasmanian Queen.
Kuran is a dedicated painter who was initially tutored and encouraged by his mother. His mother is also an artist and was a student of three time Archibald Prize winner, Clifton Pugh. He first exhibited his works at the tender age of eight and sees his work as traditional Aboriginal stories presented in contemporary form. Learn more about Kurun in his bio.
