Garawan Waṉambi

Garawan Waṉambi is the son of Munuparriwuy Waṉambi and grandson of Garrarumbu Waṉambi. After his father’s death in 1973, Garawan was adopted by Wayuŋga Waṉambi of the Marraŋu clan. As a result, Garawan tends to paint the Marraŋu homeland of Raymaŋgirr. In 2014, he was awarded the bark painting prize at the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Awards. His wife, Manini Gumana, is also a respected artist.
