Frank Wright’s artwork has made him the man he is today as he will happily tell visitors to Walgett, where he was born and currently works and exhibits. Suffering, as a child, from Meningococcal Septicaemia and later in life from epilepsy, Frank’s life was severely impacted by illness but it did provide the opportunity for him to develop his artwork.
Frank’s artwork reflects local stories and his local cultural experience as a Gamileroi man with a deep and respectful connection to country.
Frank’s energy and enthusiasm for art, and his award winning artwork – notably his recent large scale work on the Walgett water tower ,easily bridges the critical space between creativity and commercial reality, all the while maintaining the link to the cultural stories of the region. Frank has been associated with Moorambilla Voices since 2013 and his beautiful work has featured on multiple large scale backdrops, tshirts, concert programs and gift cards.
