Eddie Blitner

Born 1961, Barbil clan, Mambali Moiety, Australia.

Eddie Blitner is from Naiyalrindji and the community Ngukkurr on the Roper River, which is approximately 270 km southeast of Katherine, N.T. It is now called the Yugul Mangl Community.

Eddie started painting when he was seven years old. "My grandfathers, Fred, Gerry and Donald would be painting or carving and we kids would sit around them and watch them grind the ochre' s and mix the colours, after a while he would tell us the story for that particular painting and also teach us the songs and dance for that story. When he was in a very good mood, he let us paint the sides of the bark painting, that was my start".

Eddie has developed as a highly recognized contemporary artist and has also worked with school children and street children teaching them his painting skills and techniques.
