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

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.

* Langgeng is the Miriwoong word for grey mud. The MCA Store collaborated with Waringarri Arts to draw these colour names from Miriwoong language. The subtle blue/grey of this stunning t-shirt is evocative of the grey mud flats that emerge on Miriwoong country after the big rains.
