Cassius Nulgit was born in Kununurra, WA in 2004 and is the fifth of seven children to well known East Kimberley artist Charlene Carrington and her husband Wayne Nulgit. At only 15 years of age he has already decided he wants to follow in the footsteps of his famous family once he has finished his schooling.

Cassius comes from one of the most talented families of Ochre artists in the East Kimberley. His great-grandmother Betty Carrington is a senior elder artist; his Ganggayi (grandmother) Sade Carrington is also an International Artist and his mother Charlene Carrington is one of the most outstanding of the third generation ochre artists. Cassius’s grandfather was the late International artist Churchill Cann and his great-grandfather was the late Beerbee Mungnari, also of International standing and the last of the first generation of Elder Ochre Artists.

Cassius is certainly a young man to watch out for in the years to come!

This story was told to me by my Aunty Katie (Senior artist, Katie Cox). She paints this Dreaming too but in a different way.

In the Ngarrangkarni (Dreaming) Eagle Hawk and Crow were husband and wife. Eagle Hawk asked Crow to help him make spearheads to hunt kangaroo, but she was a lazy woman and said “No”. Eagle Hawk built a fire for cooking, then went hunting and brought back a kangaroo to the camp. He found Crow still sleeping. He was proper angry and put hot rocks in her eyes and burnt her all over with the coals from the fire. They turned into birds and live in the trees at the top of the mountain. The white in the hillside is their campfire – and this is why the crow is black with white circles in her eyes.
