This is unlike traditional Torres Strait Islander art which is more akin to mainland Aboriginal artists. Nona’s worldliness has led to success both at home and overseas. His work is regarded for its role in regenerating cultural knowledge, practices and language. The patterns, designs and bold imagery in his art are an important device for passing on wisdom that would otherwise rely on the oral tradition and dance. Nona is represented in the Aboriginal art collections of most major Australian art institutions and in several important overseas collections.
