This skateboard deck has been designed exclusively by the NGV design store in collaboration with Claudia Moodoonuthi.
Claudia Moodoonuthi’s work draws from a rich lineage of Kaiadilt women including her grandmother May Moodoonuthi, Sally Gabori and Netta Loogatha. Like them, Claudia’s work reflects her deep connection to Country, with her bold and colourful works in dialogue with the language, history and family of the Kaiadilt people of Bentinck Island. Claudia’s painting style is bright, relaxed and intimate, reflecting her experiences in remote communities while it enthusiastically shares stories of times spent with her family living, hunting and gathering in the bush.
