Information about the artist -  

Les was born and grew up near Penrith, NSW. His parents and older brother were moved to Mulgoa Mission, from Groote Eylandt after the bombing of Darwin in 1941 during WWII. 

Les moved back to Darwin in 1971 as he felt it was important to re-connect with the country from which his family had been dispossessed. It was there that he sought permission and guidance to paint from the Ngardi elders and began his career as an artist. His family returned to Ngukurr one year later.

Les is an accomplished painter nationally and internationally and has been a Cultural Adviser for over 35 years. Les has also mastered the Didgeridoo, playing at the Opening Ceremony of the Rugby League World Cup Quarter Finals in Darwin 2017 and at the Opening Ceremony of the Commonwealth Games at the Gold Coast in 2018.
