Jimi Thaiday

I was born in Cairns and grew up on Erub (Darnley Island) in the Eastern Torres Strait. My Tribe is Peiudu, one of the four tribes of Erub.

The inspiration for my art is from my indigenous heritage, livelihood and the environment in which I live and grew up.
My cultural traditions and knowledge that has been taught and passed on through generations has also influenced my

My family has always encouraged my artistic practice, giving me confidence and motivation to keep developing my ideas
and techniques.

Art has always been part of my life; it is something I enjoy doing and expressing myself through to being creative
