About

Dylan Sarra

It’s important to encourage young kids to tap into their creativity and have a sense of a culture that existed before they did, It really boosts their self-esteem when they can own a sense of identity and realise how important they are.

SARRA INC is Dylan Sarra. He is a local Indigenous artist who resides in Brisbane and originates from the Bundaberg region and belongs to the Gooreng Gooreng people.

Dylan has worked with a range of clients from both corporate and education sectors.  “We all have a voice, and with a mindset of sharing, caring and respecting each other, these stories can shape our community for open learning and understanding into a positive future.”

Dylan turns his indigenous art into a written language, using traditional symbols and modern colours that, in turn, tell important stories.

In his spare time, if Dylan isn’t down at the creek in a tinny, he runs art workshops at the local schools, teaching children about indigenous culture.

Dylan says that a good artist can be creative and articulate, but it takes a special artist to convey the subject so that everyone ‘gets it’.

  • A follow up from my last post...
With the tree completed, We took the kids charcoal animal drawings completed during classroom workshops and @Rebecca_mcduff turned them into animations. This was the result of having their drawings projected onto the wall.  Was such a great experience to work with everyone involved and get great feedback about the whole project.

  • New collaboration piece with @kyra.jo17 stretched over 3 frames. This commissioned piece will have its home shortly at the Civil Aviation Safety Authority headquarters in Brisbane city. The piece was inspired by incorporating the continuous theme of an aboriginal child learning and connecting with his environment. Focusing on the eagle and relationships our traditional owners had with our landscape, the question can be asked ‘is the bird feeding the caretakers or are the caretakers feeding the bird?’ Such is the relationship the custodians had with the land that either answer would be correct. 😉
