Eric Barney Mungi Kumanara Australian, Pitjantjatjara, b. 1973

“I like fixing cars, I taught myself – how to drive them and fix them. I’m a bush mechanic! Even if the Art Centre Toyota gets broken, I can fix him up, I know how to make all of them work again. I’ve been to Brisbane to see the art gallery two times now, flying there from Alice Springs.  In my paintings I like to put in the camels and sometimes kalaya (emu’s) too, and sometimes I make them all flying, then they all get to see country from the sky.”
