Ganbold Lundaa (Gawaa) is an artist who is inspired and interested in cultural exchange. Gawaa grew up as a horseman in a traditional tribe in the Gobi Desert. In Mongolia, he was immersed in traditional styles of art and craft and has retained a deep relationship to their meaning and processes. This relationship has now been infused with seven years of living in Australia and an australian family. Gawaa ‘s process manipulates elements from traditional mongolian arts and teases them into abstract contemporary paintings.
