Here a stunning portrait by Australian artist Guido Van Helten painted in Redfern, Australia.
The new mural painted from images from the archives of the Aboriginal Legal Service, first started in a shopfront in Redfern in 1970 providing free legal advice and services to Indigenous Australians. According to the artist, this was a vital step for Indigenous Australia who continue to fight discrimination to this day. The image relates to the Aboriginal Legal service childcare in Moree and appears as a deeply nostalgic piece with a great sentimental quality rendered through his characteristic watercolour like style.
This project was coordinated by Workshop Australia.
