Heard about this just yesterday – our mate Adnate will be putting out one of his first ever hand embellished prints, courtesy of Dangerfork and Juddy Roller. Adnate has become well known around the world for his remarkable murals depicting indigenous peoples, and as this print is a charity release all the money will be going back to the Nitjpurru community up in the NT.
On Friday at 1pm AEST, you’ll be able to pick up a copy of it on the Juddy Roller store! You can watch video, and read all about the project, below …
“In September 2013, Adnate was personally invited to visit a community located in an isolated area of the central desert in the Northern Territory of Australia. Led by Indigenous Hip Hop Projects and Katherine West Health Board, it was an incredible experience to join them on their journey. Adnate spent 5 nights with the local indigenous community, Pigeon Hole, also known as Nitjpurru. It was here that Adnate had one of his most important and integral connections with the indigenous peoples of Australia. He experienced first-hand their ancient culture, the immense beauty of their land and the people of Nitjpurru.
During his visit, Adnate was granted permission from the local Elders to photograph the members of this ancient community. After taking over 1,000 photos Adnate selected the most powerful images and painted 2 murals on buildings within the community. These photos have become the insprtion to some of the most important work of his career to date. They have been featured in masive murals in countries all over the world. Adnate hopes that this series is able to raise awareness of the Indigenous Australians and their struggle to survive in the modern world.
Adnate has yet been able to give back directly to the community of Nitjpurru and in the indigenous cultural spirit of sharing wealth within their communities, all proceeds from the sale of this highly collectable print will be going directly to the local school of “Pigeon Hole”. This will directly contribute towards the education and wellbeing of the inspirational children of Nitjpurru.
This is Adnate’s first, hand finished Giclée print. The print has been produced using high quality archival ‘Giclée’ inks by the renowned Dangerfork printing company. All prints have been hand finished with a traditional ‘dressing’ applied to each print individually by the artist.”
