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.

The lines with the dots inside of them represent the pathways that our old people used to take, the dots inside the lines represent the footprints left behind creating permanent markings in the ground. They used to take these pathways when they were travelling to go to gatherings from all over Australia to share knowledge and celebrate their creator Biami (God), Mother Earth and their Ancestors.

The circular symbols here represent the different mobs coming together, sitting at their campsites where the gatherings were held. They were peaceful people, so they never created fences or forts because they shared everything.

The desert mob call it Nupitji-Nupitji which translates to “I give, you give, everyone receives”.
