Here mural by Jay Van Nus

Galleries, Museums and Collections

Located on the Art Gallery of Ballarat’s Annexe Wall, ‘Here’ is the work of proud Bibbulmun Noongar and Chilean transmasculine brotherboy Jay Kulbardi Art.

“I made this design to encapsulate all the memories I have been fortunate to make throughout my childhood growing up here in Ballarat,” Jay said.

“I’ve touched on some key memories in my upbringing – visiting the Ballarat Botanical Gardens and Lake Wendouree with my nature-obsessed family, falling in love with my fiance, spending time bird watching with my late grandpa, and following the lizard footprints down the art gallery’s alley alongside my Abuelita as a kid.”

“The design pays homage to the Traditional Owners of the land, the Wadawurrung people who welcomed me and my Noongar family into the community, my Chilean mother who is the reason we are here, and the beautiful location, nature and art community in Ballarat.”

Check out ‘Here’ for yourself in Alfred Deakin Place (behind the gallery).
