About the artists

Basil Hall has been working as a collaborating printer with Aboriginal artists since 1983. For 16 of these years, he was based in Darwin where he and a group of experienced printmakers made prints with many hundreds of artists from over 55 Art Centers in Australia. In 2001, Hall established the atelier Basil Hall Editions (BHE) to facilitate workshops in remote Indigenous communities across Australia and to work with many renowned independent artists.

Lisa Waup is a mixed-cultural First Nations artist and curator from Narrm (Melbourne). Her multidisciplinary practice encompasses a diverse range of media including weaving, printmaking, photography, sculpture, fashion and digital art. With a deep connection to the symbolic power of materials, her work reflects her personal experiences, family history, country, and broader historical narratives.
