Napoleon Oui is a Djabugay man who explores his connection to rainforest bama (people), landscape and culture through his art. Inspired by the ancient tradition of rainforest shield designs and totemic motifs, Napoleon’s bold designs are iconic and indicative of a style only found in the rainforest region of Far North Queensland.
