Danny Eastwood is an influential and ground-breaking Australian Indigenous artist who has been working in the Blacktown community in western Sydney for over 30 years. At 68 years of age, he has retired 3 times – but unable to say no, Danny finds himself continuing at a tireless pace. He is a prolific and diverse artist practicing as a cartoonist, illustrator, and painter. He is also a very modest man who has won the Parliament of New South Wales Indigenous Art Prize in 2008 for his entry ‘My Reconciliation’, a pen, ink and water-colour on paper, depicting a scene from the back lane where he grew up as a small boy in inner Sydney.
Each fortnight Danny has to complete a cartoon for the Koori Mail – something he’s been doing for the last 20 years. In between these deadlines he travels across Sydney teaching art to inmates from Long Bay jail, Aboriginal Elders, school kids and community groups, as well as working on new public art works.
Light from the Shadows gives us an intimate and informative insight into Danny’s remarkable life and politics.
