Justin Ronberg Aboriginal Artist spent his youth in the Northern Territory and the central Desert regions where he was encouraged by his family to pursue his Artistic talents. From an early age Justin has been inspired by the mind-blowing sounds of the didjeridu.

Justin’s Australian landscape and earth images paint a strong sense of connection with the Australian outback showing the ongoing rhythm of nature which express movement in his homeland. His creations are earthy, vibrant and full of life.

The sounds and visions of the Australian landscape are expressed through his unique style of painting. This creative expression reflects his ongoing Artistic journey to promote his cultural heritage.

Principles of art and craft were given to him to enable Justin to follow his Artistic path. Justin is an internationally recognised and collected artist, who is also a fantastic didjeridu performer and teacher.

Artwork Description

The animals and reptiles that Justin paints in his artworks are totemic spirits and the Central / Western Desert Aboriginal artists paint their Dreamings to honour their ancestral spirits. The kangaroo has found a waterhole and is taking the opportunity for a much needed drink. The “star bursts” represent the Spinifex which is found throughout Justin’s desert country and the small roundels are the wildflowers that emerge in a burst of colour from late July to early September.
