Colin Wightman

Colin Wightman 1965 – 2015
From: Toomelah mission
Tribe: Goomeroi tribeColin comes from Toomelah mission, a small aboriginal community on the dry plain near the western border of N.S.W. Toomelah is the Aboriginal word for ‘those who move from place to place’ and it reflects very much the lifestyle he has chosen.
He has been an artist for over 18 years, the Goomeroi tribesman just loves to paint. The Goomeroi tribe can be found in the southern part of Queensland and northern end of inland New South Wales. Colin creates indigenous art because he loves it and he is good at it. He paints what he sees and the old stories which handed down from his ancestor.
In 2004 Colin was awarded Male Artist of The Year by the Toomelah/ Boggabilla community. In 2005 he was a finalist in Parliament of New South Wales Indigenous Art Prize.
Sadly, Colin payed away in 2015.
