David Bosun is a senior artist at Moa Arts and one of the founders of the printmaking tradition in Zenadh Kes (the Torres Strait). He has worked in printmaking, drawing and painting for over 20 years.
‘Future generations in Zenadh Kes (as well as the rest of the world) need to be educated about the rich cultural heritage and distinctiveness of Mualgal culture. This is what I do in my own work, by bringing the aesthetic and personal qualities of the artwork together with my ancestral beliefs and Mualgal cultural traditions.’
David has a degree in communications from James Cook University and a Diploma of Visual Art from Cairns TAFE.
