Davinder Hart is an indigenous artist who was born in Perth, Western Australia. His family roots connect from Bibbulmun & Katanning in the south west region of the Noongar people. After turning one he grew up in Adelaide until he was eighteen.

He travelled to Ayers Rock Resort in early 2013 where he became an indigenous activities presenter showcasing his culture to the guests that arrived from around the world. Running workshops such as boomerang & spear throwing, bush tucker talks, didgeridoo playing and traditional dance.

Davinder is strongly connected to the Ngemba people in the west of New South Wales. They have provided him with identity and ownership for his culture by going out bush and practicing old traditional ways.

With knowledge passed down from his uncles and aunties he’s able to tell stories through his paintings. His paintings reveal the traditional lessons that show the morals, ethics and values as well as his own personal lessons along his cultural journey.

Since 2016 Davinder has been residing in Port Douglas, Queensland with his partner and their baby girl. Davinder has been developing successfully as an indigenous artist and his unique art has been selling both within Australia and overseas in places such as the UK, France and USA.

Davinder would like to acknowledge his uncle Waylon Boney & Grandfather Paul Gordon for their knowledge passed down.

Meeting place is one of Davinder’s most painted stories; there are many variations of this painting, but the story is always the same. Colours do not always necessarily have meaning although for certain pieces it may. For example, blue for water and natural earth colours for the landscapes.

There are many different meeting places around Australia where we have gathered since traditional times keeping the stories alive. Going to these places you learn about several things, depending on what site you are at. Some will give you directions towards a destination point while other places can teach you about the landscapes and the stars in the sky.

We have stories for everything. Including the importance of sharing and the consequences of being greedy. When we all come together for big gatherings everyone is on the same page and follows the lore. Different mobs have different stories, but all have the same lessons. That is how we build our connections.
