About the Artist
Mick Harding belongs to the Yowung-Illam-Baluk clan of the Taungurung people – a tribe of the Kulin nation. Mick is a First Nations and Aboriginal Artist was born in Melbourne, Australia. He is a print-maker and wooden artefact creator.
Mick draws inspiration from the compelling legends of his people. Mick weaves the images of those legends into each of the original artworks he produces, because he aims to reflect the unique symbols and artifacts of South East Australia. Each artwork Mick creates, is linked to a legend and so Mick challenges the viewer to understand their place in the story.
