About the Artwork

The Artwork featured on the 2020 NAIDOC Poster was created by Artist Tyrown Waigana and is titled Shape of the Land.

The theme of NAIDOC week this year is Always Was, Always Will Be. Mr Waigana shares the story of his artwork saying,

“The Rainbow Serpent is represented by the snake and it forms the shape of Australia, which symbolises how it created our lands. The colour from the Rainbow Serpent is reflected on to the figure to display our connection to the Rainbow Serpent, thus our connection to country. The overlapping colours on the outside is the Dreamtime.”

“The figure inside the shape of Australia is a representation of Indigenous Australians showing that this country - since the dawn of time - always was, and always will be Aboriginal land,” Mr Waigana added.
