Monday Mural - Cheeky Dogs
Painted for the 2020 Darwin Street Art Festival, by local artists David Collins, Jesse Bell and Pabs, this "cheeky dogs" mural was created with original artwork from young Aboriginal artist Dion Beasley.
It can be found at 20 Shadforth Lane on the back of the NAAJA building - North Australian Aboriginal Justice Agency. (in the same lane as the Sturt desert rose mural from the 25th of October.
Dion lives in Tennant Creek in the Northern Territory, and has minimal communication skills due to being profoundly deaf as well as having Muscular Dystrophy.
Dion has overcome many challenges and learnt to communicate through sign language and his drawings. He has a great sense of humour, reflected through his 'cheeky dog' range of artwork - t-shirts, bags, caps, aprons....
Dogs have a respected place in Australian Aboriginal culture and Dion has a great talent for depicting them in a fun and entertaining way.
