Martial Arts Principal - Phygital Art Works Artist
Yuwaalaraay Language Group
n.w. New South Wales
Biggibilla’s Phygital Artworks depict a way of life that has existed from creation time in an unbroken oral transmission from the mothers brother and the sacred initiation from Doongallah (Lightning Ball).
The songlines, sand engravings and tree carvings have all been transferred into his artworks based on Yuwaalaraay matrilineal tradition.
The zoomorphic line work in his artworks are based on sand engravings, unlike the central desert dot paintings and artworks which are based on sand/dot ground paintings.
These Yuwaalaraay stories and songlines are the basis for internationally acclaimed artist Biggibilla’s artworks from 1988 to 2023. The area associated to his songlines covers approximately 12,000 sq kms, stretching from the Warrumbungle Mountains along the eastern boundary to Mt Gunderbooka in the west.
“Biggibilla” means echidna in Yuwaalaraay language. It is the initiated totem which is custodian or caretaker of daytime, flora and fauna. Biggibilla was born in 1947.
