Indigenous artists of Brisbane, Chern’ee Sutton, will be one of the artists to take part in Pullman’s first digital art exhibition. Chern’ee is an indigenous artist who has been a professional artist since 2008 and has exhibited her work in several countries around the world.
Chern’ee’s work is centred around her Aboriginal culture and language, which she weaves into vivid and intricate patterns. Her work often features strong female characters that represent the many women of her family and community. Chern’ee will be presenting her first-ever NFT at this exhibition.
The other artists set to exhibit their work are Melbourne fine artist Candy Ng, US animated artist Melissa Vincent, and 2D artist and illustrator Vi Valiukevich from Belarus. All of the artists’ works will be inspired by the concept of ‘travelling’.
This exhibition is a way for Pullman to bring together art from one of the world’s oldest living cultures with the new age medium of NFTs. It is also an opportunity to support and celebrate emerging indigenous female artists from Australia and overseas.
