Marrirn clan, Kunwinjku language, Yirridjdja moiety


Yuwunyuwun was among the group of painters at Oenpelli whose work was collected by the Aboriginal Arts Board in the 1970s. He possessed a distinctive style of painting that incorporated elegant passages of rarrk and an economy of form to convey the symbolic meanings of his subjects.

His work was selected for a number of major exhibitions, including: The Art of Aboriginal Australia, which toured North America in 1974–76; Die Kunst der australischen Ureinwohner lebt at museums in Leipzig and Dresden, in the former East Germany, in 1981; and Kunwinjku Bim at the National Gallery of Victoria in 1984.
