Hello there, my name is Danny Maybir currently studying at Melbourne Polytechnic I am a self-taught indigenous Australian artist. I work with acrylic paint,canvas,and a tool that represent’s a stick. I focus mainly on my culture (Dream time/story telling) and I use my art as a healing process within myself as it helps me a lot within my spirit and who I am is represented in each painting. For the major projects I will be undertaking this year I will be creating learning cards/post cards/posters haven’t decided. That tells the meaning or what the symbol represents. I’m thinking of two or three series to complete. My second project is a dot painting representing family, long life, wisdom, love in my self taught style. Hope you enjoy. Thank you Danny Maybir.

Sketches I have done for life drawing bringing back skills that I haven’t used for a long time. This is giving me great ideas and old skills to incorporate in my indigenous art.

Hay guys well we are at the end of the semester i have finished on a great note work has been completed with in the guidelines. It was a quest put it that way lol but was great pushed me to wont to do more. Seeing the work my fellow students were producing is full on amazing stuff i loved it everyone is so different i enjoyed it very much. I have learnt so much off the teachers and students. I got to use things that i couldn’t afford i thought that i had completed my style didn’t think it could grow much more then what it was. After being surrounded by amazing artist and teachers they helped me grow even more.
