Gadigal mural


“You are on Gadigal land.”

Gadigal mural is designed by Sydney artist Jason Wing with First Nations creative producers Dennis Golding and Lucy Simpson for Australian Design Centre (ADC). The mural is a collaborative artwork referencing both the topographical patterning and material culture of Gadigal country.

The work features curved and circular lines that reference the geographical formations of Sydney land and waters and the paths formed by Gadigal people before European arrival.

Outlines of objects, materials and figures, applied between the patterns and filled with vibrant ochre tones of red and yellow, reference the histories, culture and making practices of Gadigal people.

The creation of this mural was initiated in response to the historical importance of this site as a place of making directly aligned with the ADC’s use of the building in contemporary craft and design.

The word bangawarra incorporated into the mural means ‘make’ or ‘do’ in the Sydney Aboriginal language.

The mural adds to the cultural and visual landscape of the inner city. The artwork illustrating the rich, unbroken connections between this land and contemporary practices of making and design.
