Blak Superheroes by Dylan Mooney

Exhibition and Shows

19 Sep 2021 to 27 Feb 2022 Once Only Event

Dylan Mooney’s artworks tell stories of survival, pride and power.

“Blak Superheroes addresses and amplifies stories of representation, creating change that uplifts ourselves and mob. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have had important roles through history to present day. Blak characters’ representation in history has always been in the background, never the focal point, and characterised by racist stereotypes. These works reflect the resilience, innovation and empowerment of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to not only survive, but to thrive in so-called Australia”. – Dylan Mooney.

In his series Blak Superheroes, proud Yuwi, Torres Strait Islander and Australian-born South Sea Island man, Dylan Mooney depicts First Nations characters in a dynamic comic-book style.

Incorporating a combination of drawing, printmaking and street art, Dylan’s work is inspired by history, culture and community. He is a leader in the medium of digital illustration and creates characters that reflect the LGBTQIA+ community, while always referencing the strength and continuation of culture.
