Meet the RMA21 Artist 

In the spirit of reconciliation, ACRRM and RDAA acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. We acknowledge the Whadjuk Nyoongar people, Traditional Owners of the lands and waters where the City of Perth is today and pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging. 

We are excited to announce we have commissioned Indigenous artist Tyrown Waigana to create artwork especially for RMA21. Look out for Tyrown’s art throughout the promotion of the conference, as well as onsite in Perth. 

Tyrown Waigana

Tyrown Waigana is a 24-year-old Wandandi Noongar (Aboriginal) and Ait Koedhal (Torres Strait Islander) multidisciplinary artist and designer working out of Perth, Western Australia. 

His practice includes painting, illustration, sculpture, animation and graphic design, and he is passionate about creating high-quality content that is continually ambitious and taking on exciting projects.  

About the Artwork

The three main circles in the artwork represent the RMA21 theme of connection, collaboration and unity. These circles are connected because these themes and qualities are intrinsically linked to one another.

The swooping lines sealing the artwork represents the South West Australian coastline, where the conference is being held this year.

The hard contrast between the organic, flowing and strictly, uniform patterns symbolises the stark contrast between nature and Perth city.
