Raymond Balambula

Senior Milingimbi Artist

Raymond Bulambula was born in Milingimbi and raised at Rapuma Island, his mother’s country, to the east. His father Djimbun was very old when Raymond was growing up and he was raised primarily by his four mothers and maternal uncle. When he was a young man, Raymond set off to his country and father’s country at Langarra Island and learned his sacred stories from his father’s nephews.

Raymond makes art from three tribes, the Burrnumbirr (morning star) belongs to his mothers side (Gurryindi), he also makes the Burrnumbirr from Mallarra side (grandson for Gurriyindi tribe). Most of his painting work comes from the Mandjikay, Wobulkarra side which belongs to Langarra. He paints mainly Latjin (mangrove worm and tree), Monuk Gapu (dirty salt and fresh water with bubles) which flows to from the creek to the sea and the Warraka (cycad) amongst others.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
