I AM LOWELL HUNTER
Lowell Hunter is a proud Nyul Nyul Saltwater man from the Kimberley’s in Western Australia, who grew up on Gunditjmara Country in Warrnambool, and now lives on Wathaurong Country, Geelong. Although far apart, each of these special places have kept Lowell strongly connected to the ocean his whole life.
Lowell is a multi award winning artist who creates sand art and uses drone photography to capture the scale of his works within breathtaking landscapes, which all started simply, as a way for him to get out and connect with culture, Country and sea.
Using only his feet, Lowell carves stories into the sand using the same foot movements he was taught through Traditional dance movements his people have practiced for countless generations. Lowell’s artworks tell stories of family, identity and connection.
