REX SULTAN JAPANGARDI - FIRE DREAMING

Rex Sultan Jabangardi is the grandson of Sultan Mohammed of Kandahar, who worked on the overland telegraph across Central Australia.

Rex's father then married a woman from the Kaytetye tribe of the Barrow Creek region, approximately 300kms north of Alice Springs, where Rex was born.

Rex considered the renowned Albert Namatjira his idol, and his artistic abilities were influenced by Albert from a young age, as well as being taught by other Arrente artists. Rex completed his first painting at the age of 13.

Rex is most recognised for his depictions of Fire Dreaming and Spinifex Grass which portray his country in a highly detailed and textured fashion on the canvas.

Fire Dreaming is an important dreamtime story as the Earth's natural elements hold a great spiritual significance to Indigenous peoples in Central Australia. It is believed that the fire passing through the bush is a sign of new life about to emerge.

Rex's painting style incorporates a deep combination of color and fine line work, producing highly contemporary depictions of his spirituality.
