PRESENTATION: ARTIST TALK BY: Brian Robinson Artist Brian Robinson is of the Maluyligal and Wuthathi tribal groups of the Torres Strait and Cape York Peninsula. Born on Waiben (Thursday Island) and now Cairns-based, Brian is known for his printmaking, installation and public sculptures in which he uses a variety of techniques to produce bold, innovative and distinctive works. Robinson’s work has contributed significantly to his home environs of Cairns through a number of major public art installations including his monumental and iconic stainless steel woven sculptures installed on the Cairns Esplanade in 2003. His work reflects the tropical marine environment surrounding Waiben, and the inhabitants of that environment.
