Anthony Flanders

Anthony is a Dunghutti man who started painting when he was 17 years old. He was inspired by his two uncles, Milton Budge (dec’d) (Brian Flanders) and Robert Campbell Jnr. (dec’d).

Anthony’s paintings often relate to tucker: either bush or seafood but generally animals that can be eaten.

Some animals, however, are totems which are sacred and therefore cannot be eaten.

“The colours that I like to use relate to the earth. We belong to the earth; we do not own the land.”
