Tshirt | Sweet Country by David Brown | Waringarri Arts x MCA | boonbang

Created in collaboration with Waringarri Aboriginal Arts, this limited edition t-shirt features David Brown's original painting Sweet Country.

The original artwork painted in natural ochres on canvas is about David's grandfather longing for his home Country. "This painting is about when my grandfather left his homeland Country for a time. He later returned to revisit his old Country, to reconnect because it was a place he loved and missed."

Waringarri Aboriginal Arts is the oldest and longest running Aboriginal Art centre in the Kimberley region. Situated in the remote community of Kununurra, Western Australia, Waringarri Arts celebrates East Kimberley cultural identity and heritage, the vibrant cultural heritage of the Miriwoong and Gajerrabeng people as well as surrounding language groups.

* boonbang is the Miriwoong word for the cabbage gum. The MCA Store collaborated with Waringarri Arts to draw these colour names from Miriwoong language. The subtle sage tone of this tshirt is evocative of the stunning greens of the cabbage gums that flourish throughout Miriwoong country.
