Member Profile : Jason Murphy

Jinibara artist Jason Murphy grew up in the West End in Brisbane and retains strong links to his country.“Jinibara country goes down as far as Mt Nebo, as far north as Mapleton, West to Kilcoy”.

Jason dates the beginning of his artistic career back to the age of seven: “My big brother once drew a rose bush on a book and I thought ‘that’s cool, I want to try that’. I started to draw and paint stories.” Jason’s artworks depict the narratives of people and place. ”As an artist you never know what you’re going to be influenced by next.”

Jason’s artwork defies traditional artistic definition:

“I think the words traditional and modern are antiquated. Culture is a growing thing; always growing, always moving, always alive. If we categorise it with something that diminishes its growth, we diminish our own growth.”
