Dixon Patten

Indigenous artist

Dixon Patten is a proud Gunnai, Yorta Yorta, Gunditmara, Dhudhuroa man - he is an artist, designer, mentor, influencer and a strong community advocate. His artistic practice is informed through a strong cultural value that his family and community have imprinted into his mind, heart and spirit. He describes his narratives as being informed by Deep Listening or in his native Yorta Yorta language ‘Gulpa Ngawul’. He takes his role a storyteller seriously and feels humbled to continue this strong aspect of Aboriginal culture. Dixon has worked for a wide range of community, government, education and Indigenous organisations.
