Born: Darwin, NT
We are proud to represent Heath Minjin Wilson, who epitomizes the exciting next generation of contemporary Indigenous Australian artists. He is the grandson of the master weaver, renowned painter and respected elder Regina Wilson. His mother is the award-winning Helen McCarthy Tyalmuty.
Heath paints the stories associated with his father's and grandmother's country at Peppimenarti and Helen's home country of Bulgul. Whilst he does paint under the tuition of his mother and aunties, in particular Kerry Madawyn McCarthy and Rosemary Parrabaty Morgan, Heath has already excited us with his unique style and approach to his artmaking.
His works are influenced by the seascape and the topography of his Country, as well as the Dreamings associated with it. We look forward to seeing Heath develop his strong emerging talent and collectors should consider him as 'one to watch'.
