Jai Walker began working as an artist in 2007 at the Jambama Aboriginal Art studio and gallery in Casino. Jai is proudly Bundjalung.
His style is largely self-taught. He draws and paints the old people, haunting images of the ancestors who formed the Bundjalung nation. Jai is a unique artist with the ability to create images of his ancestors that move and speak through their eyes, bringing into focus the men and women of the past, lost but not forgotten.
Jai experiments with new techniques continuously producing work that evolves and grows with each time he produces new works. He is an inspired young artist and leaves a mark with the work he produces.
“I come from West of the range, Mallanganee – my grandmother and my father’s country. I was born stomping my feet and with a paint brush in my hand”
