Mervyn Rubuntja Aborigine dot painting

Mervyn Rubuntja was born at Telegraph Station in Alice Springs, NT in 1958. Mervyn's father, Wenten Rubuntja, (d. 2013), a major figure in Aboriginal art and law, started painting in the representational style of Albert Namatjira, evolving to more traditional dot painting style.
