Artist | Nephi Denham
Girramay Traditional Owner
Nephi Denham is a Girramay Traditional Owner of the North Murray Area. He is a speaker of language and currently lives at Jumbun, north-west of Cardwell. Nephi is one of the youngest artists working at Girringun and has quickly displayed his creative talents.
Nephi has always loved to work with his hands. A piece of Nephi’s work was acquired by the Gallery of Modern Art, Qld Art Gallery earlier this year and another piece is included in a Girringun installation which has been shortlisted for the 2010 Telstra Indigenous Art Awards.
Nephi’s work reflects his Aboriginal heritage, traditional stories and the environment in which he lives.
