About the Artist - Justin Butler
"My art is influenced by both my Kalkadoon and Bandjin stories and styles. My work involves embedding Aboriginal symbols, colours, contrasts, vantage points, and abstract designs to tell the stories of my people"

Justin Butler is an Aboriginal man from the Kalkadoon people of the Mt Isa region and Bandjin people of Munnamadahnamee (Hinchinbrook Island.) Justin's totem is the Emu foot from his Kalkadoon lineage and Yimba (Pelican) from his Bandjin lineage. Justin also has ties and connection to the Jirrabal, Warragamay and Tagalaka Aboriginal people.

The Dingo and the Kangaroo storyline

This piece describes a storyline that is known and shared across the north East coast of Far North QLD. It commences around the Gordonvale area and continues along the coast to the south until it finishes around the Cape Cleveland region (south of Townsville)

The story describes an ahm-aree(hungry) Gahndu (dingo) who is craving Manara (kangaroo) minya (meat) Gahndu chases Manara across all the land and waterways spanning across the distance of where the storyline is shared. Gahndu couldn't catch Manara and remains at his resting place location, Castle Hill (Townsville) Manara was too quick for Gahndu and remains at his location to this day, Cape Cleveland (south of Townsville).
