Biography

“I am Tim Nabegeyo. My skin is Bulanj and my clan is Djalama. My country is Mandilbareng Outstation. I did my first painting with my father sitting beside him watching him doing his painting at Mandilbareng. There I sat with him teaching me how to paint. He started painting and I started learning little by little. He taught me how to do rarrk, the fine cross- hatching. Inside rock caves I saw paintings of of kangaroos. My father told me to paint Yirridjda style.”
