Wiradjuri Artist & Indigenous Storyteller
Wiradjuri man Owen Lyons uses traditional indigenous storytelling of symbols, patterns and imagery to bring a contemporary aesthetic to the artworks he creates.
The diverse and unique patterns Owen creates in his artwork depicts the flora, fauna and landscapes of his home at Narrandera as well as from across Wiradjuri Country.
His richly detailed artworks also incorporate imagery reflecting the people and places of community he calls home.
Themes reflective of mental health also flow strong in Owen’s art, as he is a passionate advocate for those with mental health struggles, as well as their families and carers.
