Welcome to Bundaiyan
Bundaiyan was established by Paul Chapman and Dawn McBride in 2010.
Our vision is to:
At Bundaiyan we offer the unique opportunity to purchase authentic Queensland Kabbi Kabbi/Wakka Wakka Aboriginal stories, paintings and/or their images by Paul Chapman. Paul’s ancestral stories are told through large bodies of work in the medium of visual art which provide a great insight into his cultural heritage that until now has not been released to a wider audience.
We formed Bundaiyan to maintain the integrity and continuity of Paul’s traditional Kabbi Kabbi/Wakka Wakka knowledge, imparted through the stories in his artwork for future generations. We believe that understanding the interconnectedness of people, land, water, flora and fauna from a traditional Aboriginal perspective is of utmost importance, particularly in light of the perplexing environmental issues we are all facing worldwide.
According to Paul, “No matter where you may live my stories are relevant to the people of Australia and also people for overseas to understand the connectivity between land, water and all living beings”.
