Argentinian artist and muralist Pastel is also in Australia where he recently finished this new mural titled “Idealism of aboriginal Ngarluma“.
According to the artist the mural addresses the historical and political issue of the Ngarluma people, original inhabitants of the coastal areas around Roebourne (West Pilbara Western Australia) and is based on “the brutal relationship between native communities and the colonialism until 1971 when they started to be recognized with civil rights.”
Making use of his characteristic style and imagery, Pastel introduces us into the natural world and heritage of the place in a candid, peaceful and interesting way.
