  • About the artwork

    Artwork sold in perfect condition

    “This engraving represents a man who is sent at low tide on the reef to look for Maiwa (clams). He wears an upi (bamboo knife) to cut up the muscles inside the shells. After extracting the meat, he must turn the shellfish over so that no one gets hurt when walking on the sharp edges. The overturned shell also serves as a shelter for small fish at high tide. The meat that man holds also attracts hungry birds. Bird heads are hidden at the top of the image. ”Alick TIPOTI

Alick Tipoti

Australia Born in: 1975

Alick Tipoti is originally from the Torres Strait is guided by the traditional culture of his people. He believes in the Zugubal that his people have been telling him about for years.

He considers it to be his responsibility to put stories, genealogies, chants and other aspects of his culture into images, so that it stays accessible to the future generations; this way they can discover it, understand it and practice it.

Alick Tipoti speaks Kala Lagaw Ya, the language of the Maluilgal people from Zenadh Kes. He sees language as the essential ingredient that brings together all the wultures of the world today.

"Without your language you become a foreigner, lost in another persons culture. One of my favorite English word is analyze. In my language we call it Ses Tham or Thapul. Singing and dancing are forms of art that branch out from the centerpiece called language. Everything you do, traditionally or culturally, evolves from a language. When you know the language, you know your culture."

He receives the traditional ZUGUB name, which allows him to get in contact with his ancestors, the ZUGUBAL. Thanks to this privileged connection, he can translate the words of his ancestors into his delicate and complex linocuts.

Alick Tipoti's work is part of in collections such as those of the British Museum in London, the Musée des Confluences de Lyon, the Tjibaou Cultural Center in Nouméa, the Kluge Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection in the US and in numerous Australian museums.
