Gus Leunig is a Melbourne artist and musician and a talent to watch. His “My Life is a Dog” series was a sell-out at Art Sydney 2009 and in 2010 he had his first solo exhibition at Libby Edwards Galleries, Melbourne. In 2004, Leunig spent time living with his artist-father Michael Leunig in a small aboriginal community, Lockhart River. Here he worked alongside Aboriginal artists in the local Arts Centre, where his love for the territory and it’s people, gave him the passion to paint. Leunig’s most recent exhibition at the Libby Edwards Galleries featured works layered with intense colour and detail, inspired by nature, animals, his newborn son and his beloved dog Desmond.
