Sea Country and more art by Lowell Hunter

Sea Country, 2021

Lowell Hunter is saltwater man. He creates sand art and uses drone photography to capture the scale of his works within breathtaking landscapes.
It all started as a way to get out on the beach and connect with culture, Country and sea. Lowell is a Nyul Nyul man from the Kimberleys in Western Australia. He grew up on Gunditjmara Country in Warrnambool and now lives on Waddawurrung Country, Geelong. Each place has kept him connected to the ocean. He creates sand artwork using just his feet.
Lowell carves stories into the sand using the same foot movements he was taught through dance, movements his people have practised for countless generations. The artworks tell stories of family, identity and connection. Lowell was taught his dances from the age of 10 and has performed in South Africa, China and New Zealand. Today he passes this knowledge on to young Aboriginal men through Wan-Yaari, a company he co-founded to deliver mentoring, cultural programs cross-cultural training.
