Ben is a successful Aboriginal artist born in Yuendumu, a remote Indigenous community in the Northern Territory of Australia. He moved to Nyirripi with his family in 1978 where his mother began painting with the Warlukurlangu Aboriginal Artists. After he left school, Ben became a carpenter and travelled around the country building houses. In 2007 he followed in his mother’s footsteps and began to paint for Warlukurlangu Artists. Ben paints his Jukurrpa stories which relate directly to his land and its features, animals and plants.

To care for the jewellery keep it in the protective packaging and wipe clean with a soft, damp cloth. Avoid spraying with perfume or other sprays and keep out of direct sunlight for long periods of time.
