Gavin has been painting at Injalak Arts since 2006. His style is reminiscent of his grandfather, the late Bardayal ‘Lofty’ Nadjamerrek, the prominent artist of western Arnhem Land, who passed down his knowledge of land, culture and painting to his children and grandchildren. Like his grandfather, Gavin utilises the single line rarrk that has adorned the rocky caverns and galleries of the region for centuries. Gavin Namarnyilk is the son of Rhonda Nadjamerrek and Robert Namarnyilk.
