Vanity Fair Hector

Aboriginal art and artists have recently started popping up in the most unlikely of places, as this September 1998 of Vanity Fair illustrates. Perhaps such high profile visibilty is proof that Aboriginal painters are finally being recognized for their unique contribution to world art. Our good friend Hector Chundaloo was featured in a Christopher Hitchen's piece on Australia's political and cultural coming of age. Hector was captured in a pensive moment amongst some spooky termite mounds up in the Kimberly's. Though quite dapper himself Hector seems just a bit out of place next to the fashion model in the advertisement. More about Hector can be found in the Artist's section of the site under the heading Portraits.
